The Patran Municipal Council, which went to polls recently, is yet to elect its president even as Rajpura, Nabha and Samana Municipal Councils have elected their respective heads.

Narinder Shastri was re-elected as the president of the Rajpura MC today. Last week, advocate Ashwani Gupta had been elected as the president of the Samana Municipal Council, while Rajnish Mittal was chosen to head the Nabha Municipal Council.

Samana Municipal Council president Ashwani Gupta, senior vice-president Raj Kumar Sachdewa and vice-president Satpal Nahar.

Satnam Singh, vice-chairman, zila parishad, Patiala, and son of Nirmal Singh Shutrana, who is overseeing the activity in Patran, said, “The date for the announcement of the Patran MC president has been fixed for Wednesday.”

He said the delay happened as the local MLA was not keeping well.

Meanwhile, Amandeep Nagi was elected as the senior vice-president of Rajpura Municipal Council, while Sushma Rani was elected as the vice-president.

Of the 31 Rajpura MC seats, 27 were bagged by Congress candidates while two went to BJP. The SAD and AAP won a seat each.

“I was elected as councillor twice between 1998 and 2008. In the last Municipal Council elections in 2015, I lost, but later in the by-election, I won and was elected as the president of the Council,” said Shastri.

Shastri said he, along with the other councillors, had worked for the city’s interest during his previous tenure and he would continue to work for the betterment of the residents.

“We have put an end to corruption and worked for the development of the whole city,” he said.

“We now wish to work towards providing water supply and laying sewerage throughout the city. We will also work on re-carpeting of roads, wherever required, along with cleanliness of the area,” said Shastri.

Samana MC president and first time councillor Ashwani Gupta said he would work for the betterment of the city under the guidance of the senior leaders of the area.

Apart from Gupta, Samana councillors elected Raj Kumar Sachdewa as the senior vice-president and Satpal Nahar as the vice-president.
