New Delhi: In the wake of recent defeat in the Gandhinagar’s Municipal Corporation polls, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is leaving no stone unturned to win the forthcoming elections for the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) to be held in 2012.

In order to make strategy for the upcoming polls, the BJP organized a two-day special ‘shivir’ at Terapanth Bhavan, Chhatarpur as it has become a prestige issue for the party.

Coming down heavily on the functioning of MCD, senior BJP leader and former deputy Prime Minister LK Advani said, “The reputation of MCD has been dented irrespective of its good work.”

Advani told the BJP councillors to maintain a clean image.

Former BJP president Venkaiah Naidu said, “Corruption in the civic body has been constantly soaring.”

Bharatiya Janata Party president Nitin Gadkari has said there is a need to carry out a survey in all the wards of MCD in order to assess the image of councilors, which will be the basis for ticket distribution among the councillors.

Senior BJP leader Ramlal said, “The recent defeat in the Gandhinagar’s Municipal Corporation polls has shaken the reputation of the party and if it happens again in the forthcoming MCD polls for Delhi, the image of party will be hit across the country.”
