Mangaluru, 14 Nov: The BJP is all set to wrest control over the Mangaluru City Corporation (MCC) council after it crossed the magic number of attaining majority.



While Congress bagged victory in 14 wards, SDPI sprang a surprise by increasing its tally from one to two seats.


Back in 2013 MCC elections, Congress had wrested majority by winning 35 seats. BJP with 20 seats had to remain content in the role of opposition. JD(s) had won two seats, CPI (m) and Independent candidate had won one seat each.


In the previous past seven terms of the council, Congress had won with a majority as many as four times in 1983, 1990, 2002 and 2013. It had formed coalition with support of JD(S) in 1997.
