Nashik, 9 March: The Nashik Lok Sabha constituency will witness a multi-cornered contest in the upcoming polls where NCP stalwart and Maharashtra PWD minister Chhagan Bhujbal is pitted against AAP's Vijay Pandhare and Shiv Sena, BSP, MNS and CPI-M nominees.

Shiv Sena's candidate Hemant Godse had contested the last Lok Sabha elections on MNS ticket against NCP's sitting MP Sameer Bhujbal, the nephew of Chhagan Bhujbal.
Mr Godse is the son of Sena's former MP Rajabhau Godse and a sitting municipal corporator and zilla parishad member too.
Also in the fray is sitting CPI-M corporator Tanaji Jaibhave.
