Chandigarh : The mayoral elections of Chandigarh took an interesting turn on Monday when AAP and Congress came together and nominated their joint candidates to face the BJP for the Mayor race. This alliance of the Aam Aadmi Party and Congress for Chandigarh Mayor seat will pave the path for the both parties to fight the general election together in Punjab, Chandigarh and Haryana to defeat the Bharatiya Janata party.
AAP will field its candidate for the Mayor post while Congress gets senior deputy mayor and deputy mayor positions. AAP and Congress together now have 20 councilors (13 councilors of the AAP and 7 councilors of Congress) and are clearly in a winning position for all three posts.
Congress’s mayor candidate Jasbir Singh Bunty and AAP’s senior deputy mayor and deputy mayor candidate Neha and Poonam withdrew their nominations. Now, AAP candidate Kuldeep Kumar Tita will challenge the BJP candidate for the Mayor’s office and Congress’s Gurpreet Gabi will fight for senior Deputy Mayor post and Congress’s Nirmala Devi for Deputy Mayor.
Informing about the AAP-Congress alliance, AAP Chandigarh incharge Jarnail Singh said that together we will easily win this election and finally Chandigarh will have a Mayor other than the BJP. He added that we have had more councilors since the beginning but the BJP forcibly and unconstitutionally made their Mayor twice but this time they won’t succeed. Jarnail Singh said that Chandigarh will set an example that together we can defeat the BJP.
AAP leader said that to end the dictatorship of the BJP, AAP and Congress have decided to fight this election together. The BJP has done nothing for the welfare of Chandigarh and its people but now it will change. With the AAP mayor Chandigarh will see new heights of the development and public welfare works. He said that Chandigarh will set precedent and soon the whole country will follow to beat the dictatorial powers in our country.
