Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited twice in Mumbai for the inauguration of the Metro, Vande Bharat Express trains, and Bohra Muslim community’s Arabic academy during these visits many areas were revamped, roads were repaired, maintained and many slums areas were been covered.
Many opposition political leaders stated why slum areas have been hidden behind the curtains and Prime Minister should be aware that Mumbai has many slums so rather than hiding it he should give out some other accommodation.
There are many speculations made by the opposition stating PM Modi is visiting the city only for the upcoming polls and BMC elections.
Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray Shiv Sena MLA Sunil Shinde told Afternoon Voice, “PM Modi is visiting the city now and then only for elections and he only gives speeches of working for the people but does not implement on it and everyone know Mumbai has biggest slum of Dharavi so why he was hiding away from it.”
Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray Shiv Sena MLC Vilas Potnis said “Every politician is aware of the slums in Mumbai and covering the truth of the slums will reflect the results in the upcoming polls.”
While other political leaders have a different opinion over the slums being hidden by the curtains as they believed that it is quite inhuman and insensitive towards citizens.
Another political leader Charulata Tokas vice president of ‘Mahila Congress party’ said, “PM Modi only hides away from the truth due to unemployment and inflation in the country as it has also impacted people and they are moving into slums.”
When PM Modi visited the city it was revamped quickly as does not happen in ordinary times and slums been covered over this AAP spokesperson Dhananjay Shinde said, “PM Modi is so inhuman and hiding slums with the curtains as it is an insult to people who are living in slums of Mumbai and he only visits different states and countries from the money of taxpayers.”
