CPI(M) bags 100 gram panchayat seats, 8 sarpanch posts in Palghar
CPI(M) leader Ashok Dhawale said the party performed extremely well in the November 5 elections to 2,359 gram panchayats across Maharashtra, the results of which were announced on Monday.
The party sarpanches, including at least four women, shall head the gram panchayats of Kavada, Karajgaon, Udhva, Kurze, Uplat (Talasari), Sogve, Modgaon and Kinhavali (Dahanu), considered the party’s stronghold among the tribals and farmers there.
The CPI(M) supported candidates won 100 out of 167 seats in 13 villages in the two regions, with a majority in Udhva, Uplat, Kurze, Kavada, Karajgaon, Sogve, Kinhavali, and Ambesari, said Dhawale.
Incidentally, the CPI(M) has a sole legislator, Vinod Nikole, elected from Palghar’s Dahanu Assembly seat in 2019 – a constituency which it has won nine times from 1978 onwards, barring in 2014, when BJP’s Pascal Dhanare had bagged it.
