Akola: No party has won a clear majority in the Akola Municipal Corporation, as the results of Thursday's election came in on late Friday afternoon. The Congress and the BJP, with 18 seats each, are the biggest parties in 73-member House.

Suresh Patil of Congress, who was the Mayor of Akola Corporation before it was dissolved because of financial irregularities, had to taste defeat.
