The Aam Aadmi Party on Wednesday clinched the Deputy Mayor election as Aaley Mohammad Iqbal of AAP beat BJP's Kamal Bagri.
Iqbal's win comes after AAP's Shelly Oberoi won the Mayoral election on Wednesday, after three adjourned meetings of the house.
In the deputy mayor's polls, the AAP candidate secured total 147 votes, while Bhartiya Janata Party's candidate Kamal Bagri got only 116 votes. Two votes were found invalid.
BJP MP from east Delhi Gautam Gambhir was not available to cast the vote for deputy mayor polls.
Previous three meetings held on January 6 and 24 and February 6 were adjourned without holding the exercise, following a ruckus between BJP and AAP councillors.
The meeting of the MCD House held on February 6 was adjourned amid sloganeering and ruckus over the issues of Aldermen's voting rights.
