In Bharatiya Janta Party's (BJP) five-year tenures in Gautam Budh Nagar constituency, steep increase in school fees and delayed possession of homes in sister cities of Noida and Greater Noida have been an increasing concern for the citizens. And, now even the opposition political party's candidate has taken up these issues as the anti-incumbency factors to woo voters in their favour.
V S Bharadwaj, who is pitted against seating M P of Noida and Greater Noida Mahesh Sharma, said that consistent fee hike by private schools administration and developers not giving keys to homes buyers are two major issues that affect thousands live adversely.
He said residents have been facing these issues since past few years but the seating MP did not pay attention to them. ''Dr Sharma is very busy as he didn't take time out to meet voters of his own constituency," he said.
Bharadwaj, who has filed nomination of All Indian Rajiv Congress Party from Gautam Budh Nagar Lok Sabha seat, said, "I appeal to voters of my constituency that they should vote for me and I would tackle this issues once voted to power.''
Other issues being potable water as there are societies in these cities were residents are forced to consume only groundwater. Bharadwaj said, "I promise this will be sorted out if I am given a chance to serve you all."
