Uttarakhand: BJP wins 14 of 44 zila panchayat board seats in Haridwar district panchayat polls
Independent candidates won 11 seats, the Congress and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) won eight seats each, while the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) won two and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) one, according to the final results announced on Saturday.
Five of the triumphant Independent candidates and a nominee who won on a BSP ticket joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) immediately after the announcement of the results.
The BJP is going to make all the six block chiefs in the district. Most of the winning village heads are also from the saffron party.
''It is the people's stamp of approval on the programmes and policies of the BJP,'' Bhatt said.
