With only a week left for them to reach out to voters, candidates contesting the Haryana assembly elections are trying all possible means to impress residents and garner votes.

They have started door-to-door visits, approaching residents welfare associations (RWAs) in New Gurgaon and noting down their grievances.

The residents, meanwhile, say that they are troubled with issues such as lack of maintenance of sewer lines, garbage not being collected on time and poor condition of roads. Residents have decided to vote for the candidate who concentrates on development of both Old and New Gurgaon and is accountable.

The candidates, apart from holding meetings, have also opened accounts on social networking sites.

“Through Facebook I am able to connect with the people and they get a chance to interact with me directly,” said Dharambir Gaba Congress candidate. Umesh Aggarwal, BJP candidate, said that there is equal focus on New Gurgaon.
