Mumbai Politics



Mumbai has been a traditional stronghold and birthplace of the Indian National Congress, also known as the Congress Party. The first session of the Indian National Congress was held in Bombay from 28–31 December 1885. The city played host to the Indian National Congress six times during its first 50 years, and became a strong base for the Indian independence movement during the 20th century.The economy and politics in Mumbai has its own script and position in the overall political framework of India..This represents the overall picture of the economy and politics in Mumbai , which has a great influence on the politics and economics at the national level.

Mumbai is a metropolitan city and people of all religions, castes, races, languages, sects and nationalities have been living in this city for generations together. Till the 1970s the Congress party mainly controlled Mumbai. However, in 1966, the Shiv Sena came into existence mainly with the aim of safeguarding the rights of the locals' against the outsiders'. Since then this party, led by the dynamic Bal Thackeray , holds the reigns of the city. In 1995, Shiv Sena decided to go in for a coalition with Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP a national level political party) and has been consistently governed the city for several years.

The 1960s saw the rise of regionalist politics in Bombay, with the formation of the Shiv Sena on 19 June 1966, out of a feeling of resentment about the relative marginalisation of the native Marathi people in Maharashtra.The party headed a campaign to expel South Indian and North Indian migrants by force. The Congress had dominated the politics of Bombay from independence until the early 1980s, when the Shiv Sena won the 1985 Bombay municipal corporation elections. In 1989, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), a major national political party, forged an electoral alliance with the Shiv Sena to dislodge the Congress in the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly elections. In 1999, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) separated from the Congress, but later allied with the Congress, to form a joint venture known as the Democratic Front. Currently, other parties such as Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), Samajwadi Party (SP), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), and several independent candidates also contest elections in the city.
