The BJP-supported candidates bagged six of the seven seats in the Kandaghat nagar panchayat polls held on Wednesday.

The BJP-supported candidates who won were Jitender Kumar from ward number one, Sushma from ward number three, Kiran Bala from ward number four, Manish Sood from ward number five, Sneh from ward number six and Gita Devi from ward number 7.

Lone Congress-supported candidate Puneet Sharma won from ward number two.

The newly-upgraded Kandaghat nagar panchayat registered 78.14 per cent voting in its seven wards today.

Though the nagar panchayat polls were not held on party symbols, these results have come as a shot in the arm for the ruling BJP while the Congress’ factionalism has cost the party dear.

Despite having a Congress MLA, DR Shandil, in the constituency, these results reflect his declining influence in Kandaghat area as well as bitter factionalism among the local leaders.
