The opposition Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) has reasserted its political dominance in western Maharashtra, securing five of the 10 Lok Sabha seats from the region. The ruling BJP and its allies managed to clinch four seats, while one was taken by an independent candidate.

The high-stakes contest in Baramati saw NCP (SP) member Supriya Sule defeating her sister-in-law Sunetra Pawar by a substantial margin. Sule emerged victorious for the fourth consecutive time, signaling MVA's continued influence.

Western Maharashtra, comprising constituencies including Kolhapur, Satara, and Pune, saw fierce competition. The MVA, an alliance of Congress, Shiv Sena (UBT), and NCP (SP), stood firm against the ruling coalition of BJP, Shiv Sena and NCP (Ajit Pawar). The results underscore MVA's robust foothold in this politically significant region.
