Moghalpura: Blaming the MIM party for the backwardness of the Old City in terms of development, Congress MP candidate Md Feroz Khan assured to bring Rs 1000 crore package, if his party forms government at the Centre. Feroz Khan who concluded his campaigning in Old City at Moghalpura on Tuesday pointed out those parts of Old City which lagged behind while other parts of City developed was just because of the MIM holding sway and remained at the helm of affairs for over two-decades.
The Congress candidate who undertook paidaldaura in Sultanshahi, Valmiki Nagar and other localities conducted door-to-door canvassing. Earlier, on Monday night at a grand public meeting held in Yakutpura, he assured that he would work for the eradication of poverty and backwardness of the people of Old City. He visited Yakutpura Assembly Constituency and toured SRT colony, Badabazar and other areas.
People apprised him of various problems and said that people's representatives contact public only at the time of elections and leave them for five years. During his visit, Feroz Khan witnessed heaps of garbage in various parts of Yakutpura. He expressed surprise that Muslim leaders exploited the public as vote bank.
He alleged that only 10% genuine voters cast their votes and 40% voting is bogus. He held that by adopting malpractices, local political party was winning elections. He appealed to the voters of slum areas to raise their voice against injustices. Unless the voice is raised, justice will not be done. He mentioned that the day public revolts against money lenders, rowdy sheeters and anti-social elements, the local political party will realize its reality.
Feroz Khan also pointed that the local political party did not release its election manifesto so far. It has apprehensions that if promises are made in the election manifesto, people can review it after five years. He said that MIM does not make any promise since it is not interested in developing the area.
He appealed to the people to question people's representatives about developmental and welfare plans. He made a fervent appeal to voters to exercise their franchise in favour of Congress.
