Mumbai (Maharashtra): Security forces have intensified vigil in Mumbai, a day before the metropolitan city is set to go into polls in the fifth phase of the ongoing Lok Sabha elections on Monday (May 20).

The city remains under tight security cover as large-scale spot checks are being carried out by stationary and mobile teams.

Highways and roads have been barricaded as vehicles are being thoroughly inspected during the election period.

All six parliamentary seats in Mumbai will go to the polls in the fifth phase of voting on Monday.

This includes Mumbai North, Mumbai North-West, Mumbai North-East, Mumbai North-Central, Mumbai South-Central, Mumbai South, Kalyan, and Thane.

Lok Sabha polls in Maharashtra are being held in five phases: April 19, April 26, May 7, May 13, and May 20.

13 constituencies, including the six seats in Mumbai, are among the ones that will vote on May 20. The counting of votes will be held on June 4.

Known for its political diversity and significant electoral influence, Maharashtra plays a crucial role in shaping national politics.

The state, with its 48 Lok Sabha seats, is the second-largest contributor to the lower house of Parliament after Uttar Pradesh.

As the state entered its last day of campaigning on Saturday, Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde emphasised the extensive development projects and economic progress in the region under NDA rule.

"In the whole country, the biggest development and infrastructure projects are being built in Maharashtra.

Industries are being built, jobs are being given, and on the basis of this, Mahuyati will win on May 20 and break the records of last time," 

The Bhartiya Janata Party is actively campaigning in the state during the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.
