Since the incumbent president Madan Chawdhary is the brother of former Doon MLA Ramkumar Chawdhary , the development has come as major blow to the Congress in this constituency.
The Chawdhary family has held the post of the president of the Baddi MC for the last 18 years. Though efforts had been made to prevail upon the disgruntled councillors by Madan Chawdhary these have failed to yield any result.
