In the previous MC polls too, the BJP and JJP had contested the polls together and won the elections, with the BJP acquiring the highest number of votes.
The schedule has been long-awaited and comes days after the Punjab and Haryana High Court disposed of pleas against civic body elections in Haryana, paving way for the polls as per the old reservation policy.
