In the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), with 227 seats at stake, the trends pointed to a hung house, but the situation could change by afternoon when the final picture would be clear.
Counting was under way in all the 10 municipal corporations - Mumbai (227 seats), Thane (130), Ulhasnagar (78), Pune (152), Pimpri-Chinchwad (128), Nashik (122), Solapur (102), Akola (73), Amravati (87) and Nagpur (145).
According to pointers at 10 a.m., the trends showed Shiv Sena-BJP leading in 58, Congress-NCP in 46, MNS in 22 and other parties/independents in 13 seats.
A majority of the results is expected by late afternoon in all the civic bodies which went to polls Feb 16 and zilla parishads and gram panchayats which voted Feb 7.
