Maharashtra municipal council polls: Amit Shah congratulates party, says results wake-up call for Oppn

New Delhi: With BJP emerging as a major gainer in Maharashtra local polls, party chief Amit Shah on Monday said the results should be a "wake-up call" for the opposition parties who were "trying to mislead" people on demonetisation.

The party on Monday emerged as a major gainer in the first phase of municipal council polls winning 39 municipal chief's posts of the 147 urban local bodies, dealing a blow to Congress and NCP in the keenly fought elections, whose campaign centred around issues like demonetisation.
