Chandigarh, December 27
Sixty-seven per cent turnout was registered during the polling for seven civic bodies in Haryana today. The results will be declared on December 30.
These were the first elections in the state after the BJP-JJP alliance came to power in October last year.
The elections were held for the municipal corporations of Ambala, Panchkula and Sonepat, municipal council of Rewari and municipal committees of Sampla (Rohtak), Dharuhera (Rewari) and Uklana (Hisar).
In Sonepat, where a polling percentage of 56.7 was reported, the police booked a Congress candidate and his six supporters for allegedly beating up the son of a BJP candidate.
Barring sporadic incidents of spat between workers of various political parties, polling was peaceful in Ambala. Just over 56 per cent turnout was reported. Six mayoral and 101 other candidates are in the fray from 20 wards.
