BJP candidate takes office as chairman of municipal corporation

Singrauli (Madhya Pradesh): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has secured victory in the elections for the post of Municipal Corporation Chairman in Singrauli. Devesh Pandey, the BJP candidate, won 26 out of 45 votes, while his congressional counterpart Shekhar Singh garnered 19 votes. The BJP, discouraged after losing the municipal elections, rejoiced when election officer and collector Rajeev Meena announced the results of the municipal elections, in which Devesh emerged victorious.

During the election process, which began at 11 a.m. on Friday and continued until 2:30 p.m., supporters of both parties did their best to disrupt the election process. On the occasion, Congress advisers have also stooped to a new low by accusing the tax collector and electoral officer of stealthily supporting the BJP. However, the district administration persevered in its efforts to maintain public order in the area and eventually managed to complete the electoral process.

In addition, the swearing-in ceremony of newly elected councilors was organized for the first time in different places. While BJP advisers were sworn into the collector, advisers from other parties were sent to the Atal community center, to which the Congress reacted strongly.

Due to the same, Congress has also created a ruckus on the spot by surrounding district administration officials and blaming them for working as agents of Congress. However, interference from DM Rajeev Ranjan Meena, SP Birendra Kumar Singh, ASP and SDMs present at the scene calmed the situation.
