The ruling Congress won over 961 wards, leaving the BJP trailing with 737 places in the elections to the Rajasthan urban local bodies held on Saturday. The results showed that the party dominated most of the 49 civic bodies which went to the polls on Saturday. The Congress won nearly half of the 2,105 wards in the contest in the first local elections held in Rajasthan after the party came to power in last December. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said the results were as expected.
