Faridabad corp: Another post-demonetisation victory for BJP

Faridabad: In the recently concluded Faridabad Municipal Corporation elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has won 30 out of the 40 seats, showing little negative effect of demonetisation on the electoral prospects of the party. The polls were held on 8 January.

Independent candidates won the remaining 10 wards. However, some of these victors are known for their proximity to (or association with) the Congress; they did not contest under the party symbol. In fact, the Congress has had a tradition of not officially participating in these polls.

One of the wards may see a re-poll.
