Himachal Cabinet Gives Nod To Municipal Corporation Polls On Party Symbols
Elections to four municipal corporations, three of these created by the state's BJP government last year, will be held on party symbols in Himachal Pradesh.
A decision was taken by the cabinet on Monday to hold the elections to Dharamshala, Palampur, Solan and Mandi.
Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur presided over the meeting, which also cleared the proposal to amend the HP Municipal Corporation Act, 1994 and HP Municipal Corporation Elections Rules, 2012.
Two bills proposing these amendments, will be introduced in the upcoming session of the state Assembly, beginning here on February 26.
The bills, if passed, will restore pre-2016 status in case of all municipal corporations - including Shimla, one of the country's oldest municipal corporations.
