Gurugram municipal polls: BJP bags 13 seats, independents 21, INLD 1”

Bagging 21 out of 35 seats, the independent candidates stood out in the Gurugram Municipal Corporation Election. 202 candidates were in the fray from 35 wards. Around 8 pm, the results of the elections were declared. Out of these 15, while 5 were from the BJP, 10 were independent candidates.

Among the winning independents, three are supported by the Congress, and two by the INLD. Despite failing to cross the halfway majority mark, senior party leader and State PWD Minister Rao Narbir Singh said the Mayor would be from the BJP.

Though the polling percentage was lower in the early hours as the day progressed the voting was brisk.

The only aspect that took the sheen away from these elections was the poor voter turn out that remained considerably low at 55.68 per cent, despite more than 500 polling booths having been set up actors the city. The Indian National Lok Dal won in one ward. Minor scuffles, however, did break out at some polling booths, although these were resolved after police p. A fake voter was arrested from Sheetla Colony. Only 3,12,550 of them exercised their franchise across the 35 wards.Among the many who chose to stay home were residents of gated condominiums in the city, with their reasons for the decision ranging from lack of relevance of the elections to a dearth of candidates who deserved their vote."I am not dependent on the MCG for my day-to-day needs".

Elections are taking place after 6 years in Gurugram. "Poll results have been notified and the process to run the municipal administration will begin now".
