Just a year before the assembly elections, this election is a ‘semi-final’ for the Congress government led by Amarinder Singh.
The BJP is contesting for the first time in two decades without the Akali Dal, which was the oldest ally of the NDA.
Chandigarh: The fate of 2252 candidates for 116 urban local body elections in Punjab will be decided today. According to the results so far, the Congress has scored a big victory. The Congress has so far won 342 seats. At the same time, only two BJP candidates have won, facing opposition to the new agricultural laws.
This time BJP is contesting elections without Akali Dal
In this election, the Aam Aadmi Party has won 13 seats. At the same time, Bahujan Samaj Party has won four seats. BJP is contesting elections for the first time in two decades without the Akalis, who are the oldest NDA allies. The Akali Dal had distanced itself from the BJP over agricultural laws. The main contest in the urban local bodies is between the Congress, the opposition AAP and the Shiromani Akali Dal.
This election is the semi-final of assembly elections
Political reviewers say that exactly one year before the assembly elections, these elections are a ‘semi-final’ for the Congress government led by Amarinder Singh, which is trying to cash in on people’s anger against agricultural laws. On February 14, more than 70 percent voting was held for the election of municipal bodies in the state.
