Mayor, Senior Dy Mayor and Deputy Mayor’s elections also to be held
Chandigarh: Fate of the Mayoral candidates will be sealed on Thursday when the elections for the next Mayor will be held at 11 am at assembly hall of MC, Chandigarh.
Interestingly, now the nominated councillors have also decided to cast their votes whereas earlier the BJP had desired that this time nominated councillors will not cast their votes.
The BJP has fielded two time councillors Asha Jaswal for Mayor, Rajesh Gupta for Senior Deputy Mayor and Anil Kumar Dubey for Deputy Mayor’s post.
Asha Jaswal and Rajesh Gupta are from Sanjay Tandon group whereas Anil Kumar Dubey is from Harmohan Dhawan loyalists. No one from the Kirron Kher group finds place among the top three posts.
The supposedly minority opposition Congress flanks all women team for the top three spots of the house. Congress also shows its faith on second timers like Gurbax Rawat for the post of Mayor, Sheila Phool Singh for the post of Senior Deputy Mayor and Ravinder Kaur Gujral for the post of Deputy Mayor.
Despite the fact of being in minority in the House, the major opposition Congress tends to contest elections with just four seats in hand. Gurbax Rawat said though not in majority but still it is our fundamental right to contest elections.
