The results were celebrated by the victorious candidates until late night. The BJP, on the other hand, wrested from the Congress urban local body chairperson posts in Harrai (Chhindwara) and Nepanagar (Burhanpur). Parshuram said the counting was done at the headquarters of all urban bodies. The BJP's performance brought some relief to Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan who had come under intense attack over the death of six agitating farmers in police firing in June.

Mr. Chouhan, who had campaigned for the party's candidates, attributed the win to development. "The public has trusted us and we will certainly meet their hopes", he tweeted.
