BJP now holds all 16 municipal corporations in Madhya Pradesh.

A jubilant chief minister later told media, “MP ke maathey se humne bimaaru ka kalank hataaya tha. Congress ne badnaami ka kalank lagaane ki koshish kii hai. Lekin mai Madhya Pradesh ki janata ko badhaai dena chahta hun, uss badnaami ke kalank ko mitaake saabit kardiya. (I had removed the stigma of sick state from Madhya Pradesh but Congress worked towards associating this state with corruption. But I would like to thank the people of Madhya Pradesh for defeating their purpose.)
