Shiv Sena came second winning 15 seats. Out of them 02 newly elected corporators - Shaikh Shabana Sadik (Sena Prabhag 15) and Patel Inrahim Musa (Sena Prabhag 18), are Muslims.

Asaduddin Owaisi's All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) which has contested the Jalgaon local body election for the first time won 03 seats. All of them are Muslims. They are: Bagban Riyaz Ahmed Abdul Karim (Prabhag 18), Shaikh Syeda Yusuf (Prabhag 18) and Deshmukh Sunnabi Raju (Prabhag 18).

This is for the first time so many Muslims have been elected in Jalgaon Municipal Corporation (JMC) elections. The reason that Muslims have chosen BJP, Shiv Sena and AIMIM rejecting their usual choice Congress or NCP must set alarm bell ringing in secular circles.
