All eyes are on Bjp-jjp and Aap in civic polls | Chandigarh News

Chandigarh: As the state election commission website shows no change in the final polling percentage figure for the general elections of 46 civic bodies in the state, people are eagerly waiting to see the performance of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) alliance and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the state.
About 70.40% of the polls were reported in 28 city committees and 18 city councils in the state. The counting will take place on Wednesday.
The prestige of AAP Haryana co-director Sushil Gupta and Haryana BJP chairman Om Parkash Dhankar is at stake in local polls. Both sides disputed the party symbol, Gupta and Dhankar led the campaign.
“This is a golden opportunity for the people of Haryana to now have a three-engine government. Therefore, we all hope to wipe the slate clean from all seats whether they are presidents or members. That would be a one-sided result in favor of the BJP-JJP alliance,” Dhankar said.
Notably, out of the two 46 civic bodies, the BJP had competed in 14 city councils and 24 city committees while its alliance partner JJP had competed for four seats each.
Similarly, the AAP claims to have fielded candidates for presidents and presidents in all 46 seats. Sushil Gupta and four zone officials led the front and senior MPs, Punjab and New Delhi ministers had campaigned for the candidates in all civic bodies. MPs from Punjab and Delhi were also assigned the districts.
“There was a strong undercurrent of anti-establishment sentiment among voters. Voters were largely silent as we saw in the case of Punjab and New Delhi. We hope for very good results. These results would be hard and thoughtful work by our workers as well as public anger against all parties. AAP has become an alternative for the people of Haryana,” said Gupta,
Notably, the Congress had withdrawn from the elections, but the high command of the party had left it to the local deputies to take the call on the presentation of the candidates. As a result, there had been places where members of Congress had argued with each other.
Similarly, the Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) had also fielded its candidates but only in selective seats.
