NEW DELHI: With initial trends showed that the Congress-NCP combine is surging ahead in Maharashtra, Shiv Sena-BJP combine has conceded defeat in the assembly elections.

Senior BJP leader Gopinath Munde has told a TV channel said the party has conceded defeat based on trends available which showed the ruling Cong-NCP combine was clearly ahead in a majority of constituencies.

"We could not get more than 110 seats and we accept the defeat," Gopinath Munde, who led the party's campaign in the state said.

Explaining the reasons for party's defeat in the state, Munde said: "We lost in Mumbai because of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS)."

Mumbai has 36 seats.

Shiv Sena leader and former Lok Sabha Speaker Manohar Joshi also said when asked if the party conceded defeat in the elections, "If it is a defeat, it has to be accepted by everybody.”

"We are thinking as to how these results have come. We never expected these results," he added.
Initial trends showed that the ruling Congress-NCP combine leading in 137 seats, while Shiv Sena-BJP combine ahead in about 100 seats.

Asked about the reasons behind the performance of the combine in the state, BJP state president Nitin Gadkari said, "If there is a defeat, it is a defeat of everybody. If it is a victory, it is everybody's victory. I don't want to blame anybody for the defeat."
