National and state parties are contesting against each other here, and BMC opinion polls 2017 can give us a rough idea about peopleís verdict. The fight will be tough this time, as there is no big alliance like BJP and Shiv Sena.

As per Maharashtra State Election commissionís orders, there is restriction on sharing opinion polls and exit polls until evening of 21 February.
