Karamjit Singh Rintu elected as Amritsar's mayor
Amritsar: Karamjit Singh Rintu was on Tuesday unanimously elected as Amritsar's mayor by all the municipal corporation councillors, owing allegiance to the Congress.
Besides Rintu, Raman Bakshi was elected as senior deputy mayor, whereas Younis Kumar was elected as deputy mayor for the holy city.
Punjab Local Bodies minister Navjot Singh Sidhu, who is an MLA from Amritsar (East), was conspicuous by his absence.
Yesterday, apparently miffed over not being invited for the Amritsar mayoral election, Sidhu had said "he never goes anywhere uninvited except the Golden Temple or Durgiana Temple".
