What will you do for the development of Ghaziabad?
Our main emphasis will be regularisation of illegal colonies, providing drinking water and developing infrastructure in upcoming colonies. I also plan to extend the Metro route to Meerut. I will focus on developing roads, improving law and order and easing traffic jams.
How will you ensure uniform development ?
Development and regularisation of colonies like Khoda and areas of Loni will be on the priority list. Main Ghaziabad is an old city and needs special attention.
What about law and order?
There is an increase in crime under the BSP government. BJP will win from UP and form the next government at the Centre and do something about it.
Why should people vote for you?
People should vote for the overall development of Ghaziabad. If voted to power, Ghaziabad will get a national and an international image for sure.
