Election Commission on Tuesday announced the dates of Delhi Municipal Corporation elections. The MCD polls will be held on April 22. The counting of the Municipal Corporation Election will be held on April 25.
The model code of conduct is already in place. While the filing of nominations will begin on March 27, the votes will be counted on April 25. EVMs will be used in the upcoming municipal corporation elections.
Cash expenses limit per candidate has been limited to Rs 5 lakh 75 thousand. EC has announced total no of voters in Delhi for Municipal Corporation elections is 1 crore 32 lakh.
Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday made it clear that it would not field any sitting councillor in the upcoming MCD polls regardless of his or her contribution in their particular area. The move would certainly draw forehead lines among the present councillors.
While addressing a press conference, Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari justified the move, saying that the saffron party would encourage new faces in the MCD polls who have worked on the grass-root level.
He said the dynasty politics will not be entertained and people having political patronage will not be encouraged. The party has taken the decision unanimously.
