The surprising development of AAP-Congress alliance candidate Kuldeep Kumar being declared the winner in the Chandigarh Mayor elections has sent ripples through the political sphere. The decision came after the Supreme Court intervened, and saw the Aam Aadmi Party cheer, having beaten the BJP in the first battle as a united opposition with the Congress and AAP.

The apex court, on Tuesday, examined the ballot papers and scrutinized the entire video recording of the counting day. The January 30 election was marred by allegations of misconduct, leading to adverse observations by the Supreme Court. Adding to the drama, the newly elected BJP mayor, Manoj Sonkar, resigned on Sunday.

The election held immense significance as it marked the first-ever alliance between Congress and AAP, challenging the BJP and potentially setting the stage for future alliances in other states during the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. And leaders here in the state had something to say about it.

following the win in Chandigarh, Amit Palyekar expressed confidence in the INDIA bloc, saying that details of seat-sharing between the congress and AAP would be announced in 2 days. Listen to what he had to say.

Let's take a closer look at the timeline. The initial postponement on January 18 raised eyebrows, leading to rescheduling by the Punjab and Haryana High Court to January 30.
