Chandigarh MC polls : Independent candidate got only one vote

The BJP-Akali Dal alliance has scored a landslide victory by winning 21 seats (BJP 20 , SAD 1) out of a possible 26 in the Chandigarh civic polls.The Congress was hoping for a big win, but would claim just four seats. The BSP did not even win a single seat. One seat was won by an independent candidate. The Chandigarh civic poll results have come as a major boost for the BJP-Shiromani Akali Dal alliance which is facing anti-incumbency in poll-bound Punjab.

The alliance hopes that the civic poll results will have a positive impact in Punjab and Uttar Pradesh where Assembly elections are due next year.’The demonetisation drive had no impact on the municipal elections.’People voted for the clean image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi besides the development programmes initiated by the party,’ Chandigarh BJP MP Kirron Kher told.
The opposition parties like the Congress painted a negative picture about the note ban, saying it has hit the common man and small traders who have been BJP supporters.Congress had claimed that the party will win 15 seats, but the results proved it wrong.
