The elections are the main agenda for our country today but do we know the agenda of our representatives. The Mumbai north east constituency has a fight between NCP’s Candidate and Ex-MP Sanjay Dina Patil with BJP’s corporater and first time candidate Manoj Kotak. Manoj was the last minute replacement for Kirit Somaiya who is the sitting member of parliament from the area whereas Sanjay Dina Patil has been an ex-MLA and Ex-MP from the constituency.
When we tried to contact them, we were unable to contact Manoj Kotak but could manage to have a brief chat with Sanjay Dina Patil. When asked about his main agenda for the elections, he said, “Development is my first and foremost agenda and shall always be.” He further elaborated that his focus will be on getting A/C local trains to make sure that the people of his constituency have a better ride and also it shall help in saving fuel and de-congesting the roads.
He added that, “Currently the metro work has created a lot of difficulties for the common man. Before stating such work the government should have made some alternative plans to ease the traffic and the congestion. If A/C local trains would have started, many would have opted to travel by it. It will benefit the common man to save fuel, save time and give a more comfortable journey.”
The other development plans of Sanjay Dina Patil include developing an educational complex in the salt pat area that gives the students various universities under one roof. Similarly to build a health complex including public and private hospitals and medical facilities so that people of Mumbai north east get all emergency health treatments in their neighborhood.
