Hoshiarpur: BJP has been strengthening itself in the Municipal Corporation Hoshiarpur by getting the support of Independent Councillors. Earlier, 3 Independent Councillors joined BJP, totaling the number of seats of BJP to 20 and now it has become 21.
Now, Ramesh Thakur Meshi, the Councillor from Ward no. 3 of Hoshiarpur MC also joined BJP along with his large number of supporters. Notably, Ramesh Thakur Meshi was the member of BJP earlier also and he had rejoined the party on Sunday.
He joined the party in the presence of Senior BJP leader Tiskhan Sood, District President Shiv Sood, State General Secretary Jagtar Singh Saini and Vinod Parmar.
Now, 2 Councillors have left Independent. Vikram Mehta from Ward no. 5 and Monika Katna from Ward no. 31.
Yet, with 21 seats, BJP is not in the condition to form the local Government in the Municipal Corporation Hoshiarpur without the support of Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD). Yet, BJP is strengthening itself to lessen the claims of SAD for Deputy Mayor in the Municipal Corporation. SAD has 10 Councillors.
