Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Congress mayoral candidate Sanjay Shukla intensified his poll campaign by targeting the BJP for neglecting sanitation employees of IMC. During his campaign, Shukla promised to hire existing sanitation employees on a permanent basis and also to recruit 5,000 new employees.

The Congress’s mayoral candidate also campaigned in the area where Gaud lives. He rode a bicycle during the campaign.
