Hybrid formula blooms in Jhunjhunu

Jhunjhunu: Four candidates filed five candidatures on the last day of filing nomination for the post of Municipal Chairman in Bissau of Jhunjhunu on Thursday. Interestingly, Gehlot government’s hybrid formula has been seen in all directions. Here, wife of Councilor Khushi Mohammad, Jaitun Bano, filed the candidature for heading the municipality from ward no. 1 without contesting the Councilor elections.

In this regard, Returning Officer Dr Amit Yadav said that under the hybrid formula, any resident of Bissau town could file nomination papers for the post of Chairperson. Till 3 pm, Mushtaq Ali from Congress, Haroon Khatri from BJP, Congress Councilor Khushi Mohammad from Congress and independent candidate and Jaitun Bano as independent candidate filed their nominations.

Congress has a two-third majority for the huge municipality, but the rebels have made the competition interesting. If the form is not taken back by Khushi Mohammed or his wife, then the Congress may also have to face a problem.
