Cakewalk for BJP on CM Jai Ram Thakur’s home turf

Ruling party wins 11 of the 15 wards, Congress gets only 4

Mandi, April 7

The ruling BJP dished out an impressive performance in the Mandi MC poll, winning 11 of the 15 wards. The Congress could register victory only in four wards while Independents drew a blank.

The elections were held on party symbol for the first time in the newly created Mandi MC and the prestige of Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur was at stake. The results came as a big boost to the BJP.

Former Union Telecom Minister and veteran Congress leader Pandit Sukh Ram and his son and BJP MLA Anil Sharma cast their vote at Samkhetar ward, while Congress leader Kaul Singh Thakur exercised his franchise in Khalyar ward.

Highest polling of 81.32 per cent was recorded in Behna ward while the lowest polling of 66.78 per cent was registered in Bhagwahan ward.— TNS
