Pritam Munde breaks Modi's Lok Sabha record, secures highest winning margin
Pritam's win by nearly 7 lakh votes is the highest ever in the history of Indian elections.

Mumbai: Bharatiya Janata Party leader and daughter of late union minister Gopinath Munde polled a staggering 9,22,416 votes in the Beed Lok Sabha by-poll, surpassing the record set by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Pritam trounced her nearest Congress rival Ashok S. Patil by a margin of over 6,96,321 votes which is way above the 5.7 lakh margin secured by Prime Minister Narendra Modi from the Vadodara Lok Sabha seat in May. Pritam's win by nearly 7 lakh votes is the highest ever in the history of Indian elections.

While Patil trailed way behind with 226,095 votes, the third candidate - Independent Tejas A. Ghumare secured just 59,986 votes.

The Shiv Sena and Nationalist Congress Party had not put up any nominees against Pritam Munde as a mark of respect to her father, whose death in June necessitated the byelection.
