Congress, BJP joined hands to defeat AAP in Chandigarh mayoral poll, says Raghav Chadha

Punjab Aam Aadmi Party unit co-incharge Raghav Chadha on Saturday affirmed that BJP and the Congress met up to overcome the AAP in the mayoral decisions on Saturday notwithstanding the party arising as the single biggest party in the municipal corporation House.

He said that the city chairman ought to have been from the AAP as it had the largest number of 14 councilors in the House. Sarabjit Kaur Dhillon of the BJP was announced victor after she surveyed 14 votes and the AAP applicant got 13 votes and one vote was pronounced invalid. The seven Congress councilors and the solitary Shiromani Akali Dal part swore off casting a ballot.

“The BJP and the Congress met up. One councilor moved to the BJP and afterward the MP was permitted to cast a ballot,” he said, adding that even the organization conspired with the BJP to guarantee their up-and-comer’s success. He addressed why Congress went without casting a ballot.

At the point when the outcome was pronounced, Chadha came to the MC office alongside councilors and organized a dissent, requesting a gathering with appointee official Vinay Pratap Singh.

Chadha’s cases, in any case, conflict with Section 38 of the Punjab MC Act, 1976, as stretched out to Chandigarh. As indicated by it, a MP can cast a ballot in mayoral races and assuming there are two competitors, the individual who gets half and more votes of the absolute strength of the House, the person is proclaimed the champ.
