The ruling BJP on Sunday swept the civic body elections in Tripura, winning all seats of the 51-member Agartala Municipal Corporation (AMC) and clinching several other urban local bodies.
The opposition Trinamool Congress and CPI(M) failed to win any seat in the AMC.
The BJP won all the wards in the 15-member Khowai Municipal Council, 17-seat Belonia Municipal Council, 15-member Kumarghat Municipal Council and nine-member Sabroom Nagar Panchayat, state election commission officials said.
