Mumbai, March 6, 2017:
Meenakshi Rajendra Shinde who has her roots in Katapady Enagudde in Udupi District  has been elected as the new Mayor of Thane on March 6, Monday. She had  contested the local body polls from the Manpada Manorama Nagar Ward No. 3 as a Shiva Sena candidate. This is her third successive win in the elections. Meenakshi is the daughter of late Guruva Kanthappa Poojary. She is the 18th mayor while Mhaadvi was elected the Deputy  Mayor.

The Sena went all the way to establish its hold on the city by painting the town saffron. Sena flags, festoons and huge installations were placed along the lanes of the city.

Shinde was supposed to contest the elections against Ashrin Raut of NCP and Ashadevi Singh of BJP. Both the parties had also fielded their deputy mayor candidates, though they took back the nominations just before the elections and let Sena win unopposed after the party won a majority in the city with 67 seats.

Maahendra Kalyankar, presiding officer, said, “The two candidates contesting mayor elections opposite Shinde took the nomination back. Similarly, three candidates from NCP, BJP and Congress contesting deputy mayor elections took back the nominations. Both Sena candidates won the election unopposed.”
