Chandigarh, February 28

Kuldeep Kumar took charge as Chandigarh mayor at the Municipal Corporation office here on Wednesday.

The AAP leader was welcomed with beats of dhol. A red carpet was laid at the entrance. All senior AAP and Congress leaders were present.

Meanwhile, councillors Gurpreet Singh Gabi and Nirmala Devi filed nominations for the posts of senior deputy mayor and deputy mayor, respectively,

A few days ago, Kuldeep Kumar was to take oath as the mayor, but the event was postponed as he had been unavailable citing “personal reasons”.

The Supreme Court had declared Kuldeep Kumar the winner after watching the videos of the mayoral polls that had led to a controversy after the BJP candidate had been elected mayor as the presiding officer had been accused of malpractice.

The mayor will be the presiding officer for the election to the senior deputy mayor and deputy mayor to be held on March 4.
