New Delhi, Dec 20 (IBNS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah thanked people of Chandigarh after the party scored a remarkable victory in the municipal elections.

Ahead of the Punjab Assembly elections, the ruling BJP – Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) alliance on Tuesday swept the  Chandigarh Municipal Corporation polls, winning  21 out of the 26 wards in the Municipal elections.
