Asaduddin Owaisi's AIMIM secured four seats, while the final constituency, Amravati, was won by independent candidate Navneet Kaur Rana, who has since joined the BJP.

The electoral battle in Maharashtra, which sends the most MPs to the Lok Sabha after Uttar Pradesh, will be closely watched as votes are counted on Tuesday.

Overall, the BJP is anticipated to register a significant win, potentially securing a third consecutive term for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Despite these predictions, the BJP is expected to fall short of its ambitious targets of 370+ seats for itself and over 400 with its allies, a goal encapsulated in their campaign slogan, 'Abki baar, 400 paar.'
