Punjab Municipal Election Results 2021 Live Updates: Congress party sweeps local body polls, Manpreet Singh Badal congratulates party workers

BusinessToday.In     February 17, 2021

The Congress party has bagged massive wins in the Punjab local body elections. The party bagged all the municipal corporations-- Moga, Hoshiarpur, Kapurthala, Pathankot, Abohar, Batala and Bathinda. The Congress' win in Bathinda is the most unusual as it has been a bastion of the Akalis for a very long time.

The outcome of these elections is significant as it comes on the back of the ongoing farmers protests at Delhi's borders and also during the last year of Amarinder Singh's government in Punjab. Punjab's Minister of Finance and Planning Manpreet Singh Badal has congratulated the Congress party for their landslide victory in the Punjab Local Body elections 2021. Badal tweeted, "History has been made today! Bathinda will get a Congress Mayor for the first time in 53 years! Thank you to all Bathinda residents. Congratulations to the people of Bathinda for a spectacular victory. Kudos to all Congress candidates and workers, who toiled for this day."
