Indore: On the first day of ‘ Face- to- Face,’ organized by the Indore Press Club on Tuesday, candidates of Assembly Constituency No 1— BJP’s Sudarshan Gupta, Congress’ Deepu adav and Independent Kamlesh Khandelwal— counted their vision and achievements.

People prefer candidate not party: Khandelwal

Khandelwal, who is a rebel Congress candidate, began the talks. He stated that he would come to the point directly rather than indulging in blame games with his rivals.

He recalled his achievements and claimed that he would get the benefit of the tasks he completed in 5 to 7 years. Khandelwal further said that he had organized all- religion mass marriage programmes, sent women on pilgrimages, ran water tankers in the region and also conducted various welfare activities in the constituency. He was confident that people would vote for candidate rather than for the party.

The Independent candidate claimed that he is contesting the elections as people want him since his party ( Congress) overlooked him.

He claimed that he never had soft corner for the BJP and the election results on December 8 would clear the picture to everybody.

Congress’s official candidate Pradeep ( Deepu) adav claimed that he had been working in the area for a long time. He recalled that when his father was an MLA, he used to go along him. He took the credit for his wife Vinitika becoming coprorator. He was confident that he would get benefit of his father’s neat and clean reputation as a corporator and then as an MLA. He claimed that BJP’s sitting MLA Sudarshan Gupta has done nothing in the area. He also claimed that illicit liquor trade is flourishing in Nandbaagh, illegal colonies haven’t been legalized, and there are various problems in congested slums.

Sitting MLA and BJP candidate Sudarshan Gupta claimed that there were heaps of problems in the area when he took over because earlier the Congress was the ruling party. He counted development works undertaken in his tenure. He said that development works worth Rs 200 crore were executed, seven water tanks were constructed, 5000 electricity polls were installed, 300 borings were dug, while 11 school buildings were also constructed. He claimed that he had raised issues of the area in the Legislative Assembly and this had led to stopping of sell of illicit liquor and selling of Nitravet.
