BJP candidate Pritam Munde, daughter of late union minister Gopinath Munde, created Lok Sabha history by notching a huge win in Beed Lok Sabha constituency Sunday.
She polled a staggering 922,416 votes, trouncing her nearest Congress rival Ashok S. Patil by a margin of over 696,321 votes.
The record for a maximum victory margin in Lok Sabha polls was held by Anil Basu of the CPI-M. He had won by 592,502 votes from Arambagh in West Bengal in the 2004.
While Patil trailed way behind with 226,095 votes, the third candidate - Independent Tejas A. Ghumare secured just 59,986 votes.
The Shiv Sena and Nationalist Congress Party had not put up any nominees against Pritam Munde as a mark of respect to her father, whose death in June necessitated the byelection.
