Amidst all the hullabaloo, Urmila Matondkar thanked the media for being fair and just towards her and said the media is ''The fourth important pillar of democracy.''

Can Urmila Matondkar Win?
The BJP is alert to the fact that Govinda (Congress) defeated Ram Naik (BJP) during the 2004 Lok Sabha elections and earned the nickname 'giant killer'. The Congress hopes to repeat the same in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and this time with Urmila Matondkar.
