Activists of political parties sitting in a center during the counting of municipal elections in Haryana.

  • BJP sweeped in five Municipal Corporations Yamunanagar, Karnal, Rohtak, Hisar and Kurukshetra which were held two years ago.
  • In the first week of November, BJP-JJP lost in Baroda by-election and Congress won.

The election results of 7 urban bodies announced in Haryana on Wednesday were shocking. The current coalition of the BJP and Jananayak Janata Party (JJP) has suffered a setback in the election. Despite being in power, the lotus bloomed in only two of the seven bodies here. This result may prove to be a danger bell for the BJP amid the ongoing agitation against agricultural laws. At the same time, the Congress could win only one body because of factionalism.

After the result, the BJP and the JJP will have to discuss the reasons for the loss. At the same time, despite the defeat in the cities despite the BJP, is not a good sign for Dushyant’s party. At the same time, the Congress will also have to take tough steps after successive defeats.

Did a clean sweep 2 years ago
The BJP took a clean sweep in five municipal corporations, Yamunanagar, Karnal, Rohtak, Hisar and Kurukshetra, which took place two years ago. Recently, in the Baroda by-election held in the first week of November, the BJP-JJP was defeated and the Congress won. Soon after, elections were held in 7 urban bodies. Despite winning 4 years of the tenure of the current coalition government, it won only two.

Ambala and Sonipat slipped by hand
The Panchkula Municipal Corporation and the Rewari Municipal Council may have managed to secure the post of city president, but the Ambala and Sonepat municipal corporations slipped from the BJP’s hand. In Sonipat, the victory of the BJP-JJP alliance candidate of the Congress, especially former Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda and his Rajya Sabha member son Deepender Singh Hooda, is a major setback.

Haryana Jan Shakti Party wins in Ambala
In Ambala, his wife Shakti Rani Sharma, former Union Minister Vinod Sharma’s candidate from Haryana Jan Shakti Party, won the election. In total, out of the three municipal corporations Panchkula, Ambala and Sonipat, only Panchkula came under BJP’s share.

On the other hand, the performance of the Congress in the Sonepat Municipal Corporation was excellent, but in other cities, the Congress also seemed to be upset. The BJP won the election in the Rewari Municipal Council, but the alliance lost in the municipalities of Uklana, Dharuhera and Sampla and independent candidates won the post of President. However, both Congress and BJP have claimed their claim.

BJP benefited here
It was a matter of benefit for the BJP that former Education Minister Rambilas Sharma was in charge in Rewari, his hard work paid off. In Panchkula Municipal Corporation, BJP’s mayoral candidate Kulbhushan Goyal also had his own influence. Due to BJP’s vote bank and their personal ties, Kulbhushan Goyal won the election with just 2057 votes over Congress candidate Upendra Kaur Ahluwalia. Kulbhushan has also benefited from the internal feud of the Congress.

Panchayati Raj elections may also have an impact
The farmer movement is believed to be the reason for BJP’s defeat. A lot of villages come in urban bodies. In such a situation, there can be no denying that now Panchayati Raj elections in February can also have an impact. It is not hidden from anyone that people of many villages of Haryana have completely boycotted BJP and JJP.

In the past, the Mahapanchayat of 40 Khapas in Jind had asked for pressure on JJP and Independent MLA-Ministers to withdraw support from the government. Meanwhile, JJP leader and Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala himself had given a statement that if the Central Government did not agree on the minimum support price, then he himself would sit out of the state’s power.

Despite this, four days before that in Uchhana of Jind, people dug the helipad made for Dushyant and Dushyant kept coming to the wedding ceremony. The tour had to be canceled. Not only this, the Chief Minister himself had to face the anger of the farmers who were campaigning for the Municipal Corporation elections in Ambala. More than a dozen farmers have been booked in the name of assaulting their convoy.

Captain Ajay Yadav in Rewari overshadowed familism
Now comes the loss of the Congress. Rewari veteran Congress leader and former Finance Minister Capt. Ajay Singh Yadav dominated familism in Rewari. Independent candidate Upma is the wife of party’s old leader Satish Yadav. He was seeking tickets from here but the decision of the Rewari Council was left by the party to the captain. Ajay Yadav decided to field his brother’s son’s wife Vikram Yadav in the election battle. The result was that Vikram Yadav could reach only number three after securing 15 thousand 271 votes.

Hooda again hired Salja, convened legislature party meeting
Chief Minister Bhupendra Singh Hooda has prevailed over Congress state president Kumari Selja before the Congress debacle in Ambala and Panchkula and victory in Sonepat. Sailja fielded candidates of his choice in Ambala and Panchkula. Hooda was not even called for campaigning here, while the candidates for Hooda’s choice in Sonepat and Captain Ajay Yadav’s in Rewari were given. Hooda managed to win his choice in Sonepat, while in other places, the Congress was upset.

Hooda says that the BJP has won a corporation and a council, while the Congress has won by 14,000 votes in Sonepat. The Congress debacle in Ambala and Panchkula should be churned. The BJP has been wiped out due to the peasant movement. Hooda said that the Congress Legislature Party will meet in Chandigarh on Thursday.
