'Civic body is not supportive, hinders my work'

Residents say you are least concerned about development and never paid any attention to their grievances?
People have high expectations, and as their elected representative, I agree with them to some extent. However, the MCG has not been very supportive and thus, developmental works have been hampered.

The main problems in the area are water supply and damaged roads.
I know, and I am working in this regard. As I said earlier, things are being delayed on the part of the MCG. All power lies with them. We can, at best, protest.

Most residents say that you have not been accessible after winning the elections?
This is a baseless allegation. I am always available. After winning the elections, I have been meeting them frequently as it is my responsibility to work for my ward and I am always ready to solve their problems.

Are you happy with the development works being carried out in the past one year?
I am happy with my performance but I have to do a lot of work for my ward. I believe the projects which I have initiated recently, and others that will start later, will change the residents' mindset after the results.
