Suncity Apartment dwellers on Sarjapur Road elected new committee members for their apartment blocks on July 21. More than four hundred residents of the apartment gathered to cast their vote and elect their favrioute candidates. They elected 60 block level posts and 21 central executive committee members. Candidates went door to door and campaigned.
