Election to CMC mayor’s post on Jan 22

Cuttack: The State Election Commission on Monday issued notification for election to the mayor post of Cuttack Municipal Corporation (CMC).

While nomination for the coveted post will be held on January 22, withdrawal, voting, counting and result will be declared on the same day, the notification said.

The mayor post was lying vacant since December 29 last year following Anita Behera’s resignation from the post due to the ration card imbroglio.

Opposition BJP and Congress had demanded the scalp of Behera whose name appeared in the beneficiary list of National Food Security Act (NFSA).
