Chandigarh mayor polls: AAP-Congress allege vote tampering, share video | Watch | Oneindia

Manoj Sonkar of the Bharatiya Janata Party emerged victorious in the Chandigarh mayoral elections on Tuesday, securing 16 votes compared to the 12 votes garnered by the Congress-AAP candidate, Kuldeep Tita.

The outcome sparked controversy as eight votes were deemed invalid, prompting Opposition leaders to accuse the process of being rigged.

Chaos ensued when Sonkar assumed the mayor's position, leading to protests against the presiding authority, Anil Masih.

Marshals were called in to restore order.

The newly elected mayor is now tasked with overseeing the elections for senior deputy mayor and deputy mayor.

These polls hold significance as they mark the inaugural electoral challenge for the Opposition's INDIA alliance against the BJP and signify the first-ever alliance between the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Congress.
