Even in 1977 when the north was swept by the Janata wave, this constituency remained faithful to the Congress, its MP being none other than Vasant Sathe. Madhusudan Vairale -- actress Kiran's pa -- was the last Congressman to win from this seat, his two-time stint as MP ending in 1989 when the constituency elected Pandurang Pundalik of the BJP. In 1996 he was elected for the third consecutive time, and he defeated B R Ambedkar's grandson, Prakash of the Republican Party of India.
