He condemned the forces trying to communalise the election.

In another press conference, the  former state minister and MLA Jitendra Jaiswal alias Pappu appealed the traders’ community to ensure Sitaram’s victory to give the city a new face-lift.

He expressed his concern over repeated incident of the clashes between members of two community and said certain political leaders are trying to polarise the vote banks but the traders and common people have realise their strategy and they would foil it.

He said Prasad would be the citizen mayor, if people would vote him to power. He condemned political party for not believing their devoted party workers and filed the defectors of other party in this election.
