The Biju Janata Dal (BJD) led by Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has made a landslide victory in the urban local body (ULB) election, for which results were declared on Saturday.
The State Election Commission (SEC) conducted elections for 109 ULBs on March 24. The results of 105 municipalities/notified area councils (NACs) and three municipal corporations of Bhubaneswar, Cuttack and Berhampur were declared on Saturday.
However, the counting of votes of Dhamnagar NAC was halted due to some reason, sources said.
The BJD has won chairperson seats in 73 municipalities/NACs and mayor seats in all three municipal corporations — Bhubaneswar, Cuttack and Berhampur.
