Pune Municipal Corporation elections: Woman voters outnumber men in 6 wards
With women slowly emerging as a major vote bank, aspiring corporators planning to contest from six seats of Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) will have to experiment strategies and campaigns to attract the fair sex. As Pune city gears up for the civic body elections likely to be held in the next 3 to 4 months to fill the 173 seats in PMC, the figures from electoral rolls show that six wards, which account for 18 seats, have more number of women voters than their male counterparts.
These wards are Gokhalenagar-Vadarwadi, Fergusson College-Erandwane, Shaniwar Peth-Raviwar Peth, Shaniwarwada-Kasba Peth, Shivaji Maharaj Stadium-Rasta Peth and Ghorpadi Peth Udyan-Mahatma Phule Mandai.
Further, in two wards – Ideal Colony-Mahatma society and Shivdarshan-Padmavati – the strength of women and men voters is almost equal.
Three corporators will be elected from 57 wards each, and two from one ward for the 173-member PMC.
