The North Municipal Corporation will elect its new officebearers on Monday. With the terms of the current Mayor and Deputy Mayor of the corporation coming to an end, councillors Yogendra Chandolia and Ravindra Gupta from the BJP will be elected unopposed as Congress has not filed any nominations for the posts.
Looking forward to the “victory,” Leader of the House, Mahendra Nagpal, said successive impositions of the Model Code of Conduct had stalled the city’s development and that “needs to be brought back on track”.
“The development of Delhi has stopped and it is a critical issue. We will win Monday’s election, then the country’s and then Delhi’s so that the BJP can make this development possible,” Nagpal said.

Leader of the Opposition in the North corporation, Mukesh Goyal, had earlier stated that the Congress had refrained from nominating anyone in the House “due to the steep difference in the number of seats”. While the BJP has 59 seats in the House, the Congress has 29.
Besides the Mayor and Deputy Mayor, the North Municipal Corporation will also elect representatives to the Standing Committees of the House.
The meeting to elect the Mayors and Deputy Mayors for the East and the South corporations is scheduled on April 29.
The tenure of the three existing Mayors and Deputy Mayors of the three Municipal Corporations of Delhi comes to an end this month. This year, the post of ‘Mayor’ in all the three corporations is reserved for Scheduled Caste candidates.
According to provisions of the Delhi Municipal Corporation Act, 1957, it is mandatory for the House to elect new officebearers — Mayors and Deputy Mayors — in the first meeting of the House in April every year.
This year, due to the short tenure of the Delhi government, no MLAs were elected to the corporations. So, 102 councillors of North corporation, 62 of East corporation and 101 of South corporation will elect the officebearers.
