Shelly Oberoi: From DU prof to MCD mayor

New Delhi, Feb 22 : When 28-year-old Shelly Oberoi joined Aap Aadmi Party (AAP) as an activist in 2013, little did she know that one day she would be heading the Municipal Corporation of Delhi as the Mayor.

And now, Delhi got its first woman mayor in little over a decade when Oberoi defeated BJP's Rekha Gupta by 34 votes in the much-anticipated election. Rajni Abbi was the last woman to be elected to the top post in the MCD in 2011 before its trifurcation.   Wednesday's voting was held at the Civic Centre.  After her win, Oberoi acknowledged people's greetings with folded hands. Party councillors offered sweets and garlands to the newly-elected mayor on stage.
