Published On: February 19, 2024 - In a surprising development in the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation, BJP's Manoj Sonkar resigned as Chandigarh mayor just a day before the Supreme Court was set to hear a plea alleging irregularities in the recent mayoral polls. Sonkar's resignation followed the earlier resignations of three Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) councillors – Punam Devi, Neha Musawat, and Gurcharan Kala – who had been out of contact for three days before joining the BJP, citing dissatisfaction with the Arvind Kejriwal-led party.
