- Maharashtra BJP chief Chandrakant Patil, who is fighting his maiden Assembly election, is up against a united opposition from Pune's Kothrud seat, and it will be interesting to see how he takes up the challenge.
- The state minister, who is considered no. 2 in the Devendra Fadnavis Cabinet, is also facing the tag of being an "outsider", since he hails from Kolhapur.
- He is pitted against Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) candidate Kishor Shinde, who also has the backing of the opposition Congress and NCP.
- Patil's candidature from Kothrud, a BJP stronghold considered as one of most upmarket residential and commercial areas in the city, earlier saw dissensions in the party ranks with some calling him an "outsider".
- Some Brahmin outfits also claimed that denial of ticket to sitting MLA Medha Kulkarni was a slight to the community.
