    BJP defeats Congress in Panaji civic polls.

    Panaji, Mar 20 (IBNS) After a humiliating defeat in the March 3 assembly polls, Congress, which tried its best to capture the Corporation City of Panaji (CCP)-Asia's oldest civic institution, faced a similar fate.

    Vaidehi Naik, backed by the BJP, was elected as the Mayor. She defeated Congress' Rudresh Chodakar by 15 v/s 14 votes.

    Tony Rodrigues, who switched over his loyalty from Congress' Atanasio Monserrate's camp to BJP, was elected as the Deputy Mayor.

    Rodrigues had backed out from the Monserrate panel amidst allegations that he worked against his wife and Taleigao MLA Jennifer in the assembly polls.

    Mayor Naik is the same BJP corporator who had charged CCP's outgoing Mayor Yatin Parekh of molesting her on the voting day on March 3.

    Congress' Parekh, who lost to CM Manohar Parrikar in Panaji, reportedly tried to remove the BJP badge from Naik's person alleging she was canvassing inside a polling booth. Whereas the BJP leader alleged he tried molesting her.

    Mixbag for BJP.

    BJP won Panaji Civic polls. Both Mayor and Dy Mayor.
    BJP won mehboobnagar bypoll in A.P., Opened the account.

    Lost in Manas, Gujarat. Lesson not to be over-confidence before Assembly poll by year end. But MODI will win Gujarat poll. I can bet on that.

    Setback in karnataka, Lost Gowda seat. Last time also, He won by small margin and this time Yeddu didn't supported him. Anyway, Still this is loss. BJP needs to end this Karnataka internal politics.
