|Nirmal Nahta declared as Mayor, Jaipur|
Jaipur is a city where large numbers of Jain live in. There are more than two lakh voters in Jaipur belonging to Jain community. However, the Jains in Jaipur failed so far to establish themselves politically strong enough.
Sakal Jain Samaj have been trying to establish its political credential and demanded seats in State assembly and parliamentary elections from both Congress and BJP, major political parties in Rajasthan.
The Congress party nominated Sanjay Bafna, a Jain community member as their candidate at Sanganer assembly seat. However, BJP had not nominated any Jain member as their candidate in Jaipur in Rajasthan assembly election 2013. Neither Congress nor BJP had given a chance to a Jain candidate in Jaipur in parliamentary election.
Four of the Jain community members Nirmal Nahta, Vikas Kothari, Mahrndra Ajmera and Jaya Jain have been elected as Councillors in Jaipur corporation election 2014. Nirmal Nahta, a senior BJP leader and two time winner as Councillors has declared as Mayor of Jaipur. He was elected and took oath as Mayor on November 26, 2014.
Jain society will felicitate them on December 3, 2014 at Mohanbadi, Galta Road, Jaipur.
