Anup Gupta

The Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) candidate Anup Gupta on Tuesday won the Chandigarh Mayor election by defeating Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) candidate Jasbir Singh by just one vote. Out of 29 total seats, BJP bagged 15 seats while AAP won 14 seats.

The Congress, which has six councilors, and Shiromani Akali Dal, which has one councilor, abstained from voting, which made it easier for the BJP to win. A first-time councilor, Gupta was elected in 2021 from Ward 11.

Anup Gupta has previously held the post of Deputy Mayor. He had also held the post of BJP secretary. He is considered a close aide of all top BJP leaders, including Sanjay Tandon, Arun Sood and MP Kirron Kher.

Similar to last year, the BJP defeated the AAP by just one vote to win the position of mayor of the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation. Both BJP and AAP have 14 councillors each in the House, while Chandigarh’s MP, who at present is BJP’s Kirron Kher, also has a vote as an ex-officio member of the municipal corporation House.

Last year, each party received 14 votes. However, one vote for AAP candidate Anju Katyal was ruled illegal, allowing Sarabjit Kaur of the BJP to win the election. Gurcharan Jeet Singh Kala, a Congress councilor, switched parties in June 2022, bringing the BJP’s strength in the house to 14, making the race for mayor a tough fight.

Voting for the Chandigarh mayor’s election began at 11 am on Tuesday in the assembly hall of the municipal corporation.

Currently, the Municipal Corporation has 35 councilors.

BJP stages protest outside AAP headquarters against Arvind Kejriwal over Delhi liquor scam, workers raise slogans of Kejriwal chor hai

CM Arvind Kejriwal had termed the allegations by the ED as fake and cited that such allegations are happening to topple the elected government.

Reports have come to light from the National Capital where Bharatiya Janata Party organised a protest outside Aam Aadmi Party’s headquarters over the liquor scam. The BJP demonstrators were demanding resignation of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over allegations of corruption pertaining to the liquor sales policy.

It was also reported that the BJP workers were raising slogans of Arvind Kejriwal chorr hai (Arvind Kejriwal is a thief) as the saffron party continued to demonstrate outside the AAP headquarters.

The protest by the BJP comes after the Delhi Chief Minister had questioned the veracity of the Enforcement Directorate’s claims and dismissed the investigation agency’s allegations. The supplementary chargesheet had named Vijay Nair, Sharath Reddy, Binoy Babu, Abhishek Boinapalli and Amit Arora.

CM Arvind Kejriwal had termed the allegations by the ED as fake and cited that such allegations are happening to topple the elected government. Aam Aadmi Party convener had also stated that the investigation agency doesn’t file cases with the objective to stop corruption, but rather to help BJP poach MLAS.

Following the chargesheet by ED, the BJP slammed the Arvind Keriwal government and said that the chargesheet has acted as a tool to unmask the real face of Delhi Government. Delhi BJP MP Manoj Tiwari had also alleged that the liquor mafia bribed 100 crore Rs to Arvind Kejriwal’s aid acting on the direction of the Delhi CM.

A court on Thursday accepted the supplementary chargesheet against five accused, as well as seven companies in the case of alleged inconsistencies in the Delhi excise policy. The Delhi government had scrapped off the Delhi excise policy last year after the CBI ordered an investigation into the alleged corruption.

The ED has claimed that a sum of Rs 100 crore bribe was also used in the Aam Aam Party’s Goa campaign for the assembly elections.
