    Sena retains Thane LS seat, Paranjpe wins by over 86,000 votes

    Mumbai (PTI): Shiv Sena on Sunday retained Thane Lok Sabha seat with its candidate Anand Paranjpe defeating NCP candidate Sanjeev Naik by 86,565 votes.

    Anand, son of Sena MP Prakash Paranjpe, whose death in February necessitated the bypolls, took an early lead over Naik and maintained it through out.

    Soon after results were declared, jubiliant Sena supporters shouted slogans outside the Agriculture Produce Market Commitee (APMC) premises in neighbouring Navi Mumbai, where the counting took place.

    Sanjeev Naik is the son of state minister Ganesh Naik. Senior NCP leaders had campaigned hard but their efforts proved futile as Sena managed to retain the seat, party's traditional stronghold.

    The bypolls, which were held on May 22 witnessed a low turnout.
