Punjab CM accuses BJP of 'looting democracy' in Chandigarh mayoral polls

The results of Chandigarh mayoral polls have stirred up a political storm as both Congress and AAP targeted the BJP and accused the party of 'cheating'.

Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on January 30 hit out at the BJP, whose candidates swept the top three posts marking a huge setback for AAP and Congress alliance.

Speaking at a presser, Mann said ...All 16 on their side know how to vote and 8 on our side don't even know to vote!... Democracy was 'looted' today...Anil Masih is the Head of the BJP Minority Wing. They made their officer bearer the presiding officer. On 18th January he said that he had a problem with his spine so he couldn't come (for election). Today, I came to know that he was right. He didn't even have a spine. He is spineless. If he had a spine, he would have counted (the votes) properly..."

Notably, BJP candidate Manoj Sonkar defeated the AAP's Kuldeep Kumar for the mayor’s post, polling 16 votes against the 12 won by his rival. Eight votes were declared invalid.
