Vadodara civic body to elect dy mayor today

The deputy mayor and standing committee chairman of Vadodara Municipal Corporation (VMC) are likely to be re-elected to their respective posts at twin meetings of general board and standing committee on Saturday, ending speculations of change to assuage discontent among local leaders post Assembly elections.

"Incumbent deputy mayor Harjivan Parbadia and chairman of the standing committee Vijay Shah are most likely to get one more term each on Saturday. This formula has been adopted in civic bodies in Ahmedabad, Jamnagar and Rajkot also," a top leader of city BJP unit told the Indian Express on Friday, on condition of anonymity. "However, coordination committee of the party will take a final call on the two posts at its meeting later on Friday evening," the leader further said.
