BJP To Form 8 ZPs, Cong Has To Content With One

Bhubaneswar: OdishnewstimesBureau On Feb 22, 2017; On the basis of the results of the three-tier Panchayat polls, BJP is all set to form eight Zilla Parishads (ZPs) in Odisha while Congress has to remain content with only one Zilla Parishad in Jharsuguda district.
It is likely that the BJP may get Gajapati Zilla Parishad seat as a bonus, which will be clear after announcement of the final results by the State Election Commission (SEC) on February 25.
The saffron party is celebrating its sterling performance as it has jumped from 36 seats to nearly 300 seats and in the process, pushed the Congress to the third position.
The ruling BJD has fared miserably in Kalahandi district as compared to BJP which has gained 92 percent seats by winning at 33 out of 36 ZP seats. BJP has captured 49 out of 56 ZP seats in Mayurbhanj, 26 out of 34 in Bargarh, 24 out of 34 in Balangir, 13 out of 18 in Sambalpur, 10 out of 13 in Malkangiri, 10 out of 13 in Subarnapur and six out of seven in Deogarh district. The counting of Gajapati is also expected to be in favour of BJP. While some variations may occur after the official announcement of the results, there is no doubt that the performance of the BJP in the Panchayat polls is quite remarkable.
