Mayor Polls: 6 More Bjp Councillors Join Party’s Camp, Mock Voting Held | Jaipur News

JAIPUR: Amid fears of cross-voting in BJP and Congress, at the last moment six councillors from BJP joined the party’s camp at a hotel in the city where all councillors are staying till the voting for the post of JMC-Greater mayor is held on Thursday.
On Tuesday, a mock voting process was also conducted by the BJP to make sure that councillors do not get confused during the actual voting process which will take place on November 10. Representatives from BJP are claiming that over 90 party councillors have joined them and they are confident of victory.
BJP MLA Ramlal Sharma said, “The purpose of mock voting was to train the councillors for the mayoral election, so that no councillor makes mistakes during voting. In this mock poll, 84 councillors voted out of 93 and all of them got their votes right.”
Meanwhile, in Congress, state cabinet minister Pratap Singh Khachariyawas met party councillors on Tuesday night. The Congress has been claiming that some councillors form BJP are in touch with them who are likely to support their mayoral candidate. On Tuesday afternoon, a prayer ceremony was also arranged for the BJP councillors while Congress held a similar ceremony in the morning for their councillors.
Congress, Independents protest at JMC-H: Meanwhile, Congress and Independent councillors of JMC-Heritage protested outside the corporation office on Tuesday afternoon demanding formation of committees at the earliest.
The corporation board at JMC-Heritage, which will complete two years on Thursday, was made with the support of independent councillors who were promised that they would be made chairpersons of various committees. But none of the committees have been formed till now, because of which the councillors protested on Tuesday.
Total 21 committees must be there in JMC-Heritage, but none of them have been formed due to infighting between MLAs and councillors. If the committees are not formed at the earliest then we will start the process of dissolving the board at JMC Heritage,” said Kusum Yadav, Independent councillor from Kishanpole zone.
