Gandhinagar (Gujarat) [India], October 5 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers and supporters started celebrations as early trends showed that the party was leading in the Gandhinagar Municipal Corporation elections.

The counting of votes for the Gandhinagar Municipal Corporation (GMC) elections is underway at a centre in the city on Tuesday.

People on Sunday used their franchise to elect 44 councillors across 11 wards of the GMC.

This was the first major election after Bhupendra Patel took charge as the chief minister of Gujarat.

The BJP is in power in the civic body, while Aam Aadmi Party is also contesting the elections.

The poll body had earlier postponed the election, originally scheduled in April, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. (ANI)
