Results in previous elections – Over the last four elections, the contest in Pachora Assembly constituency has largely been between Shiv Sena and NCP even though the latter has one the seat only once since 1999. In the 2014 election, Shiv Sena’s Kishor Appa Patil won the seat with a handsome margin of 28,000 votes by defeating incumbent MLA Dilip Onkar Wagh. The win was important for the Shiv Sena because it has retained the seat since 1999, and also because in 2009, Dilip had wrested control of the seat from two-time Shiv Sena MLA Tatyasaheb RO Patil in 2009. Tatyasaheb had defeated Dilip in 2004 with a margin of 16,000 votes in 2004. Tatyasaheb had won the seat for the first time in 199 by defeating its nearest rival and then-incumbent MLA Wagh Onkar Narayan by over 16,000 votes.
In the 2019 Assembly election, NCP has once again fielded Dilip Onkar Wagh as its candidate while the Shiv Sena has fielded incumbent MLA Kishor Appa Patil from the seat.
