MCD elections LIVE: Counting of votes for 250 wards to start at 8 am
MCD is one of the largest municipal bodies in the world and caters to over 11 million residents. It runs primary schools, dispensaries, waste management, roads, and sanitation in the capital of India. The MCD polls are also unique because it is a junction where the central government and the state government compete with each other.
The national capital witnessed high-decibel campaigning by AAP and BJP which made top leaders, including Union ministers, chief ministers of BJP-ruled states and MPs hit the streets for door-to-door campaigning and meetings to garner public support.
If AAP sweeps the MCD polls, be for the first time in the last 15 years that the BJP will not control the MCD. The BJP has governed the civic body in Delhi since 2007.
