Filing her nomination papers, Congress candidate from Mumbai North Central Lok Sabha seat Priya Dutt on Wednesday said her poll campaign will focus on development and appealed voters to rise above religious and casteist considerations.

Speaking to reporters after filing the nomination papers at Mumbai Suburban District Collector's office, Dutt said providing basic amenities and improving infrastructure in the constituency would be her top priority.

"I want development of the city to be humane. Rehabilitation of slum-dwellers should be done as promised and (rail) commuters should get better facilities. I will try to achieve these goals," the sitting MP said.

Reacting to her BJP rival Mahesh Jethmalani's charge that she has been an ineffective MP, Dutt said the eminent lawyer is not part of her constituency and he has been ill-informed.
