The MP BJP on Tuesday announced the party candidates for the post of chairpersons/president and mayor of municipalities, nagar panchayats and municipal corporations going to polls in the state. The two-phased elections are slated to be held in the end of November and early December.
The party also announced candidates for the post of corporator of urban bodies. Wednesday is the last date for filing nominations for the elections.
The candidates announced on Tuesday include 10 candidates for the post of mayor in municipal corporations that go to polls in MP.
On being asked if it was a failure on part of the government that elections in many urban bodies had been deferred owing to stays imposed by the high court, state BJP president Nandkumar Singh Chauhan parried the questions and only said that the government was better placed to reply to them.
