Bye-election to Gondia-Bhandara Lok Sabha seat was necessitated following the resignation of MP Nana Patole and his subsequent quitting from the BJP.

Palghar MP Chintaman Wanga from the BJP had died in January this year.

The contest in Palghar is expected to be an interesting one as the Shiv Sena has chosen Wanga's son Srinivas to be the party candidate for the by-poll. The Congress, on the other hand, has fielded Damu Shingda from the seat, while the Bahujan Vikas Aghadi, a local party dominant in the belt, has fielded Baliram Jadhav.

Today is the last date of filing of nominations for the bypoll. Counting of votes will take place on May 31.
