However, everyone's eyes were on the results of Aurangabad Gram Panchayat election as a son had formed his father's panel against mother. Aditya, son of former Kannada MLA Harshvardhan Jadhav, had set up a panel against his mother. Aditya challenged Harshvardhan's panel against his own mother Sanjana Jadhav. Sanjana is the daughter of Union Minister Raosaheb Danve. The third generation of Raibhan Jadhav became active in the Gram Panchayat election campaign. After the arrest of Harshvardhan Jadhav, Aditya took over all his political work. However, Jadhav's panel did not get much success in this election. Even his mother Sanjana could not shine much.
