Vice-president Virendra Sachdeva has been appointed as the president in-charge till further notice.
The BJP ruled the MCD for the last 15 years but the party lost its reign to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) with a thin margin of 30 seats. The BJP won 104 out of 250 seats against the AAP’s 134. The BJP had won 181 seats last time.
Delhi-ites have thrown out the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) from the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) after 15 years. This clearly shows people were not happy with the Saffron and opted for a change in the MCD. Oo
BJP however has put up a strong fight against AAP in most the wards in East Delhi. Once these wards used to be the bastian of Congress which has lost its face value. However, the Congress has won nine seats. Three in the Shahin Bagh itself.
People have voted agaist the AAP candidate in Patparganj which is the assembly constituency of Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia. Apart from that people have opted for BJP in the assembly constituency of AAP leader and former health minister, Satyendra Jain whose video went viral showing him taking massage from a POCSO accused in the Tihar. Sisodia has projected the man as a physiotherapist and slammed the BJP. The BJP wasted no.time and exposed the lies of AAP.
Let’s take a glance at the final vote share. AAP at 134, BJP at 104 Congress at 9, and others at 3.
Both the parties had made tall claims and big conviction… It’s now for AAP to show if al all it cares for people and keep it’s convictions. Bleak chances though as AAP is know for flouting it’s convictions. From free wifi to cctv camera none of it’s convictions came to be true.
Immediately after ther the final poll count and Election Commission announcing AAP as the next contender for the MCD, Delhi’s chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal thanked Delhi for opting for AAP in the MCD.
People have opted for a change, it will be intersting to watch if AAP fulfills it’s convictions. Coming days will decide if AAP deserves MCD or not.
Second and final phase of Gujarat Polls were held on December 5 (today). Some of the prominent people who cast their mandate includes Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, State chief minister Bhupendra Patel among others. The festival of polls came to an end for this year.
Exit Polls were held immediately after the polling concluded. Results for Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat, and Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) were discussed. Though, any Exit Polls cannot be full proof or the last say but still it helps to understand the trend of winning or losing in any polls. Also, there are possibilities that entire or part Exit Polls can go wrong totally but the chances are rare. The samples collected for the survey are done after immense research and analysis.
The poll season or fever comes to an end with the closing of second phase of Gujarat polls.
Different brands or poll analysts have different readings but the message is more or loss clear. Suppose Channel A is predicting Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) in lead then Channel B, C or D too have same reading, numbers may differ.
After returning to Delhi, PM Modi attended a party event at the BJP headquarters and discussed the 2024 general elections. This shows how serious this party is about winning elections. On the contrary, there is Rashid Alvi of Congress who on a television debate argued by saying “hum harenge kyunki hum jitna nahin chahte hain…” (We may lose because we were not interested in winning polls).
On average, in Gujarat, and Himachal Pradesh the trend is towards the BJP. Congress making a dent and AAP being totally wiped off in Himachal Pradesh (seats between 0 to 1). Congress is trying to revive atleast in Gujarat where Exit Polls show it behind BJP with around 30 to 40 per cent) votes. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on average is fighting the battle with 1 to 15 seats.
Though it’s too early to predict as the picture may change on the actual counting day.
However, in MCD, the trends show that AAP has done good homework and is sweeping Civic Polls in Delhi with around 140 to 170 seats. This is indeed a very big development for a party that has lost its face value over liquor politics. Though, it’s not the ‘win win situation’ for the AAP but is getting the advantage of anti-Congress votebank.
The results for MCD will be declared on December 7, 2022. Results for Gujarat, and Himachal Pradesh will be declared on December 8, 2022.
Around 1.5 crore electorates will cast their mandate across 250 wards, for the Municipal Corp[oration of Delhi (MCD) elections taking place on Sunday today. The voting percentage till 12 noon which is 18 per cent shows very poor voting in the city. Though, there is still enough time for people to come out of their houses and cast their votes. Many are expected to turn out in the afternoon being a Sunday. Voting began at 8 am and polling station gates will be shut at 5.30 pm.
There are 1,349 candidates in the fray and over 1.45 crore electors are eligible to exercise their franchise in the elections to the 250 wards of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), the results of which may have ramifications beyond the national capital.
The main fight is between Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and Congress. On the side lines of the MCD polls, all the parties were seen engaging in the allegation and counter allegation syndrome. However, AAP seems to be over confidant in saying that it will win the MCD and oust the BJP as people in the city are with them and are not happy with the Saffron.
Barely 24-hours left for the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) polls. All the political parties have done their best in terms of campaigning.
The viral video of Satyendra Jain may or may not prove to be a game changer. Electorates by and large have decided who to elect.
Around 250 municipal wards will go to polls on Sunday. Like all civic polls, the MCD poll 2022 too has immense significance. Civic polls are directly connected with people and local issues. In case of issues relating to drainage, cleanliness, water logging, or anything regarding city roads etc, it’s the municipality that we first blame. In that case, you need to have a sound political party in the civic body as only then your problems will be solved and at present there is no other option but the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). It’s not that BJP has done mind boggling development across the ward the city but it has maintained a consistency like cleaning of garbages or roads and pavements.
The political tug-of-war is between BJP, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Congress. AAP has been making noise that people in Delhi will elect them in power. Dy chief minister Manish Sisodia in a recent campaign trail at Mayur Vihar, east Delhi, said, “दिल्ली को अगर सफाई और कूड़ा मुक्त करना है, तो आप की सरकार को लाना है…” (If you want a clean and garbage free Delhi then bring AAP in MCD”. Sisodia should have been told, least talk of development in Municipality but what has AAP done in the city? Not a single developmental project. On top of it it crippled Delhi with it’s liquor politics. Masterplan was flouted to open liquor shops, ‘thekas’ even 100 metre radius of religious places and educational institutions. People fumed, protested but it fell on the deaf ears of AAP that claim to be the perhaps only political party to think for people, women.
The stage has been set, ball set rolling… On Sunday people will excercise their franchise to elect their respective councilors and subsequently, mayor would be selected. The actual scenario will come to light on December 7, 2022, when results will be declared.
Stage has been set… All the preparations are complete… If you are still wandering what I am talking about… I am referring to the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) polls scheduled to take place on December 4, 2022. With barely 48 hours left, the campaigning came to a close at 5pm today. Now, it’s the waiting for the election day. Political parties Predominantly three parties in the fray – Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), and Congress.
All the three parties have done their best as far as the campaigning goes. Some candidates have added a personal touch by going around houses, touching feet of elders and requesting them to vote for him or her. The others have taken out processions across the lanes and bylanes of their constituencies. In short, all the parties in this MCD have done extensive campaigning.
It was after decades I saw candidates almost daily hitting the road and interacting with locals at least it happened in Mayur Vihar constituency. While talking to locals, I found their criteria to elect their councillor is clear. Locals would go for that person who stay in the area or is easily accessible.
In this MCD polls, the most significant thing that has turned out to be an attraction is the fielding of women candidates in large number.
Though it’s too early to predict who will win the MCD polls but going by the trends, there is an indication of cut throat fight between BJP and AAP. Not only there will be one of them will put a dent on the other but will help the other party to win under anti-incumbency factor. Congress that used to be at the helm once, will only put dent or cut votes.
Apart from development, the issue of the viral video tape of Satyendra Jain is already working in favour of BJP which has and have touched to expose the AAP in the coming days.
MCD polls will decide the respective councillors and in broad sphere, the mayor. People are decided as some openly say BJP will be able to retain its MCD seat while others opine that AAP will come to MCD. Too early to react though, the results will be out on December 7, 2022.
