BJP never won Bhokar seat
Bhokar seat actually comes in Nanded district and Lok Sabha constituency. Congress has won 8 times in Bhokar seat while NCP has won once and independents have won 2 times. BJP has never been able to win an election on this seat. From this it can be understood that the Congress has always dominated this seat. The Bhokar seat, which is considered the safest seat of the Congress, has been lucky for Ashok Chavan. Ashok Chavan won the election from Bhokar seat in 2009.
Ashok Chavan has been MP from Nanded
Ashok Chavan’s father and former Chief Minister Shankar Rao Chavan reached Parliament by winning from Nanded Lok Sabha seat. Ashok Chavan has also been an MP from Nanded Lok Sabha seat. Despite the Modi wave in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Ashok Chavan defeated BJP’s Digambar Bapuji Patil. But Ashok Chavan lost in the 2019 Lok Sabha. He was defeated by Pratap Rao Patil Chikhlikar of BJP. In such a situation, in the changed circumstances after the year 2019, everything will not be as easy as before for Ashok Chavan in Bhokar seat.
