In what qualifies as a great political thriller, Imtiaz Jaleel Syed of All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen defeated Shivsena's Chandrakant Khaire by a margin of 4,492. After a close shave, Imtiaz Jaleel Syed will now govern Aurangabad for the next five years.
For this seat, Indian National Congress placed its bet on Zambad Subhash Manakchand while the Bahujan Samaj Party fielded Jaya Balu Rajkundal. Khaire Chandrakant was the candiate from Shiv Sena.
