Jamshedpur : Candidates in fray for Lok Sabha elections from Jamshedpur seat are putting their best effort. With D-day inching closer for the Jamshedpur seat, the contestants in fray have stepped up their campaign, knowing that it would be a tough contest.
Development of the constituency is the main poll plank of all the contestants. According to BJP candidate Bidyut Baran Mahto “I have full faith on the voters of Jamshedpur. They will be electing their MP on the basis of performance of candidates. I openly ask the voters to judge my tenure as the MP and then decide to vote. The people are only going to cast their vote on the basis of performance of the candidates and the Government. I am here seeking votes of the people for the work that I have done so far in the last five year of my tenure as the MP of Jamshedpur. During my tenure as MP I have toured every nook and corner of my constituency and understand issues concerning the people. Whether it was new trains or roads, I have ensured an over all development of my constituency area. I have several future plans to ensure sustained development of the region. If voted to power I will try my best to start a pension scheme for two lakh labourers in the area”.
JMM candidate Champai Soren said : “First of all let me tell you that I belong to this area. I am the son of the soil and have been a part of the movement for separate state Jharkhand. I understand the pulse of the people of the region. I have been active activist and have been crusading for the rights of the people even before I was elected MLA. I want to be their voice and ensure that they reap the benefits of different projects. I am also concerned about migration of labourers from our region to different states. This is a vital issue that needs to addressed. If voted for Lok Sabha I will raise issues of tribals in the house to draw attention of the Government. Our party has envisaged roadmap for equal and sustainable development of the urban and rural periphery of the Jamshedpur parliamentary constituency. I am aware of the problems of the city here since my earlier days as political activist. If, I get an opportunity to represent the city (Jamshedpur LS seat) than certainly, I will even take up the issues which I couldn’t as party activist. I want to work with the people and make a difference. I see a lot of potential in Jamshedpur”.
