Early Times Report

Jammu, Sept 25: Instead of announcing the names new Mayor and Deputy Mayor after the resignations of the sitting head and his deputy of the JMC resigned on Saturday afternoon, the BJP leadership decided to take some time to select the new Mayor and Deputy Mayor.
After developments in Kathua and Udhampur Municipal Councils, BJP has decided to tread cautiously on JMC to avoid any bickering.
“Party leadership along with corporators of the JMC will sit together to finalize the names of Mayor and Deputy Mayor on Sunday”, Ravinder Raina, president of J&K BJP has told media. He said that all BJP corporators would be taken into confidence while announcing the names of the new Mayor and Deputy Mayor.
Denying any infighting in the party, Raina said that both Mayor and Deputy Mayor have voluntarily decided to step down to work for the party.
Sources said that BJP leadership has decided to delay the announcement of the Mayor and Deputy Mayor to end infighting among party corporators.
A meeting of the corporators and senior leaders was convened at the party headquarters on Sunday to reach a consensus on the name of the new Mayor and the Deputy Mayor but no decision was taken.
JMC mayor Chander Mohan Gupta and his deputy Purnima Sharma on Saturday submitted their resignations after a meeting chaired by Jammu and Kashmir BJP president Ravinder Raina.
Gupta and Sharma took over their respective posts on November 15, 2018, after the BJP swept the prestigious JMC, winning 43 out of the 75 wards. The urban local bodies elections were held in four phases from October 8-16 in 2018 after a gap of 13 years.
The leader said the BJP had initially decided to change the mayor and his deputy after they complete their half terms. However, due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020, the party decided to continue with both of them.
