The BJP created history on Saturday by emerging victorious in the 34-member house of the Shimla Municipal Corporation by winning 17 seats. It was a major setback for the ruling Congress as this election was being seen as a semi-final precursor to the Assembly elections.

Since the beginning of the vote count, candidates supported by the BJP stayed ahead in the 34-member house of the Shimla Municipal Corporation . According to a report, of the total 34, the BJP won on at least 17 seats whereas

Earlier in 2012, the CPM had won the Municipal Corporation's Mayor and Deputy Mayor 's posts.The corporation had been a Congress citadel for the past 32 years . BJP state president Satpal Satti said the Congress after losing the poll was trying to create a confusion by adding Independents to its tally.

“We will form the next corporation,” he said. Independent Rakesh Kumar, who won Panthaghati ward, is likely to support the BJP, said Satti. There were a total of 126 candidates in the fray and polling was held on June 16 after the High Court orders as the ruling Congress had managed to defer the elections indefinitely.

The Congress government earlier had also changed the pattern of the polls changing it to non-party basis instead of holding the polls on party symbols.
