Milind Deora, Congress candidate from Mumbai South Parliamentary seat, attended a ‘Meet your Mumbai’ debate forum held in Mumbai on Sunday by V Citizens Action Network (VCAN) at C P Tank in South Mumbai.
The platform also saw the presence of other competing candidates from the constituency including Bala Nandgaokar of the MNS, Sena-BJP alliance representative Arvind Sawant and Meera Sanyal representing the Aam Aadmi Party.
In his opening remarks, Milind Deora said, “The primary responsibility of the Member of Parliament is to legislate and raise your voice for the people of your constituency over vested interests. I am proud that in the last 10 years, I’ve always spoken for my people and their needs. Performance in the assembly is a key parameter to map the success of a leader. I have an above national average of attendance in Parliament and I have raised questions in the assembly which is double than the national average. It’s an honour to represent the people of South Mumbai constituency who have rendered their continued support to me and my initiatives in the last decade. It is overwhelming to see that in 2004, we saw only 6.5 lakh voters in the constituency and today we have over 15 lakh voters, I urge you all to vote in this election.”
