Garhshankar, February 17
In 13 wards of Garhshankar Municipal Council elections, 3 councilors were elected on Congress and 10 councilors were elected independently. These elections saw the embarrassing state of the Bharatiya Janata Party. BJP candidates were in the fray in two wards and their bails were forfeited. The total BJP candidates got only 27 votes from across the city. The performance of the Shiromani Akali Dal in this election was also very disappointing. The total Akali Dal candidates got only 491 votes from across the city. The city’s total polling was 9449. Despite the Aam Aadmi Party being the MLA from here, the Aam Aadmi Party’s failure to field a candidate on its symbol in any of the wards has been a major topic of discussion among the people.
