Sujanpur (Pathankot), Might 2
Bhoa Congress MLA Joginder Pal’s open defiance has given the BJP a chance to elect the president of the Sujanpur Municipal Committee (MC) the place, by the way, the Congress enjoys a majority.
The president’s election has been postponed twice, the most recent being on April 29 when Pal sparked off revolt by teaming up with a lady councillor, Babbli Mahajan, to thwart the PPCC’s plans of appointing its man.

The BJP is certain to get its man elected because the MC chief if our get together doesn’t set its home so as,” mentioned a Congress councillor.
Ever because the PPCC was pressured to reschedule the election date, the BJP has gone on an overdrive to ensnare three opposition councillors which successfully means it’ll have the bulk. The allurements being given to the fence-sitters embrace two of them being adjusted as president and vice-president.
