Delhi MCD Election 2022 Results: Delhi Can Still Have A BJP Mayor, Party Hints

New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party may have won the majority in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi polls but the Bharatiya Janata Party hinted on Wednesday that the mayor's election is still an open game. The party said that Chandigarh, where AAP was the largest party, has a mayor from BJP ranks.

"Now over to electing a mayor for Delhi. It will all depend on who can hold the numbers in a close contest, which way the nominated councillors vote etc. Chandigarh has a BJP mayor, for instance," BJP's IT department head Amit Malviya said in a tweet.
Though the AAP had emerged as the single largest party by winning 14 seats in the Chandigarh municipal polls for 35 wards but it had not won a majority.
Delhi BJP spokesperson Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga also claimed that the city will again have a mayor from his party.
The AAP on Wednesday emerged victorious in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi polls by winning 134 wards, ending the 15-year rule of the BJP in the prestigious municipal corporation and reducing the Congress to just nine seats in a House of 250.
