Bhartiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Corporator (ward no 19 D) at Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC), Dayashankar Tiwari, on Tuesday, became Nagpur’s 54th Mayor by securing 107 votes from 149.
BJP Corporator (ward no 23 B) Manisha Dhawde was elected as the Deputy Mayor of Nagpur.
Tiwari, a fine orator, who represented the city of Nagpur at national level public speaking championships and India at international level, succeeded former Mayor of Nagpur and BJP leader Sandeep Joshi, who resigned recently.
Tiwari filed his nomination for the post of mayor after Joshi resigned in December 2020.
The online voting process started at the NMC’s Civil Lines office in Nagpur, on Tuesday, at 11 am.
Tiwari became the First Citizen of Nagpur after defeating Maha Vikas Aghadis Manojkumar Gavande, Congress Ramesh Punekar and BSPs Narendra Valde.
While speaking to Nation Next about his plans regarding Nagpur city, he said, Education and health of the people of Nagpur are my priorities and I will try my best to deliver on what I say.
When asked about his plans regarding the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine in the city of Nagpur, he replied by saying that according to the law, rights regarding this were vested with the municipal commissioner and we will work together on the distribution plan.
I’m a worker of the Bhartiya Janata Party. The party thought that this was the best time to hand me the responsibility of the city. I will work my best to be true to their trust and shoulder my responsibilities as the Mayor of Nagpur, he added.

Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
