New Delhi, Feb 20, 2024: The Supreme Court on Tuesday declared Aam Aadmi Party candidate Kuldeep Kumar the winner of last month’s Chandigarh mayoral election. The top court ruled that Kuldeep Kumar is declared to be the validly elected candidate for the post of Mayor of Chandigarh Municipal Corporation.

Earlier in the day, the top court examined the eight ‘defaced’ ballot papers of the Chandigarh mayoral poll and video recording of the counting process following the contentious victory of BJP in last month’s mayoral election.

Pulling up returning officer Anil Masih for ‘contempt of court”, the court had ordered to treat the eight invalidated ballots as valid.

The apex court then declared the results declared by returning officer Anil Masih invalid.
