Mayoral Election: The BJP gains support of two more independent councillors


Hubballi: On the eve of the mayoral election for HDMC, the Bharatiya Janata Party got the support of two independent candidates.

Kishan Belagavi, and Chandrika Mestri officially joined BJP in the presence of Union Minister Pralhad Joshi and Jagadish Shettar.

With these two HDMC members joining the BJP, the party’s strength in the 82-member council increased to 42; the BJP had won 39 wards and one rebel candidate joined the party shortly after the election results were announced.

The magic number to rule the corporation is 42, and the BJP has the required number. Besides this, they have five legislators and one MP. So it is almost sure that the BJP will rule the corporation for the third time in a row.
