Karnal, August 14

Intense lobbying is underway after the Municipal Commissioner issued a message to all councillors of the municipal corporation (MC) for holding elections to posts of Senior Deputy Mayor and Deputy Mayor.

Aspirants for both posts have started approaching other councillors, some of them have reached out to senior BJP leaders for support. Aspirants are using various ways to garner support, including parties.

"I have been approached by various aspirants for both posts, but will go with the decision of the party," said a councillor. A BJP leader said some of the councillors were lobbying for the posts.

Municipal Commissioner Nishant Kumar Yadav had issued a message to the councillors following a letter of the ACS, Urban Local Bodies, to Commissioners of Karnal, Rohtak, Yamunanagar, Hisar and Panipat MCs to conduct the elections for both posts on a priority basis.

In the 20-member House, the BJP has the majority as it has 18 councillors and both posts are likely to go with the ruling party.
