Wankhede defeated Rana with a margin of over 19481 votes. The Amravati Lok Sabha seat was one of the most hotly contested constituencies. Rana was previously elected as an independent candidate in the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections. Union Minister Amit Shah had campaigned for Rana in the 2024 elections as she decided to run for a second term through the BJP. His husband, Ravi Rana is MLA representing the Badnera Vidhan Sabha constituency in Amravati. 

Wankhede, on the other hand, was an elected Congress MLA from the Daryapur Vidhan Sabha Constituency. His win has come as a massive shock to the Ranas and the predictions that Navneet Rana will become MP for a second term.
