With the Lok Sabha election just a few months away every party is trying its best to woo voters. While some parties are making promises to improve governance some others have announced several welfare schemes to attract voters. On the other hand, Brian Miranda Congress corporator from Vakola had alleged that Congress MP Priya Dutt has not carried out any developmental work in her constituency. He made this statement after visiting the BMC ground at Kalina for having a look at the deteriorating situation of the ground. Miranda also added that leaders like Priya have become useless for the Congress party.
Miranda alleged that Priya Dutt had never interacted with the common man to know about the problems faced by him. After becoming a MP Priya has visited her constituency only few times. Since the general election is just round the corner Priya might appear before the masses in her constituency to show that she is working for their welfare.
Expressing his displeasure over the functioning of Priya Dutt, Brian Miranda said, “Priya Dutt was never keen to work for the development of her constituency. According to me, Priya is not utilising the funds efficiently. As an MP, it’s her responsibility to resolve the issue faced by the people in her constituency. However, she is not fulfilling her responsibility.”
Miranda also claimed that people belonging to Priya Dutt’s constituency is unaware about her. People are unable to meet her as she remains inaccessible to the common man.
“I am a Congress corporator but even I had to struggle a lot to meet her Priya as she remains inaccessible. Being a corporator if I am finding it difficult to meet Priya then how will the common man be able to meet her? People belonging to Priya’s constituency have to wait for hours to meet her. Thus people are unable to meet the legislator elected by them” Brian Miranda further added.
Brian Miranda along with Priya Dutt had come into limelight during the BMC election. Two groups were formed from Ward No 84 between Kripashankar Singh and Priya Dutt for nominating candidates for the BMC election.
Kripashankar Singh had nominated Brian Miranda, while Dutt and her supporters proposed the name of another candidate. Finally the issue was sorted out and tickets were allocated to Brian Miranda.
