BJP’s Sarabjit Kaur became the new mayor of Chandigarh Municipal Corporation, won with 14 votes

The mayor election of Chandigarh Municipal Corporation has been won by the Bharatiya Janata Party. Sarabjit Kaur of BJP has been elected as the new Mayor of Chandigarh Municipal Corporation. The presiding officer declared 14 votes for BJP and 13 votes for AAP. Whereas, one vote was declared invalid. A total of 28 votes were cast for the mayoral election. Despite being a big party in Chandigarh, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) could not win the mayor’s election.

In the 36-member assembly, 28 votes were cast in the mayoral election. While during this 7 councilors of Congress and 1 councilor of Shiromani Akali Dal remained absent from the house. After BJP’s victory in the mayoral election, AAP started protesting inside the assembly building itself and accused the presiding officer of being biased. To protest, the councilors of AAP reached the mayor’s seat. During this, Chandigarh DC intervened and tried to stop them.

When the protests escalated, the assembly called marshals to remove the AAP councillors. After this, the Chandigarh Police also reached the assembly hall. During this, Chandigarh DC directed the protesting AAP councilors to go to their seats. But AAP councilors continued their protest. After a huge uproar, the DC left the assembly building. The secretary of the house repeatedly requested all the councilors to leave the mayor seat and sit in their respective seats.

However, the AAP councilors refused to give up the mayor seat and damaged the property. Significantly, AAP had performed impressively in the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation elections by winning 14 out of 35 wards. While BJP won 12 wards, Congress 8 and Shiromani Akali Dal won 1 ward. On the other hand, Union Minister and Punjab BJP in-charge Gajendra Singh Shekhawat congratulated Sarabjit Kaur and said, ‘I want to congratulate Sarabjit Kaur of BJP and the new mayor of MCC. Instead of protesting and seeking political sympathy, AAP should take legal action.’
