Mumbai: The Leader of Opposition in the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly Eknath Khadse on Saturday said that BJP did not perform as expected in the recently-concluded municipal council polls.

Talking to reporters, Khadse said even though party did well in terms of percentage of votes and number of seats, it was not as expected.

"At tomorrow's meeting in the presence of the party chief Nitin Gadkari and senior leader Venkaiah Naidu, discussions will be held regarding why the party did not perform as expected," he said adding that a resolution on the urbanisation and its challenges will be passed.

He criticised the state government for making populist announcements on the eve of the enforcement of the Code of Conduct.

"The government did not feel like taking welfare initiatives for rural people," he said. Apart from 10 municipal corporations, elections will be held in 27 Zilla Parishads as well.

The seat-sharing talks for the ZP and municipal polls are 85 per cent complete and a formal announcement will be made next week, he said.
