Ward quota fixed
Our correspondent 12 December 2014, Bhopal
Reservation of wards under Bhopal municipal limits was held through lottery on Wednesday, the second time in as many months. Earlier , the wards were reserved for different categories through lottery on October 7 but it was struck down by Madhya Pradesh high court.
Fate of Bhopal's 85 municipal wards was held through lottery much to the anxiety of local political leaders.A change in reservation status of the wards does affect the electoral prospects of the contensants. However, much to the relief of several leaders, the new draw did not change fortunes of many major political players in Bhopal Municipal Corporation(BMC). Status of 20 seats remained the same, as the draw held in October.
However, in the new draw district administration was able to rectify an error that crept in last time during reservation of wards. Ward 85(Katara) was erroneously reserved for scheduled tribe (ST) candidate in the last draw which was corrected.BMC ward 60(Govindpura) was listed as an SC reserved seat instead, taking the total number of SC wards in Bhopal to 12.
