“Opponents are misguiding people”: Dr Rane
The opponents were not in the sight during last five years when I was fighting for Konkan in the Parliament and raising funds for development of this region, said Dr Rane
Ratnagiri: The opponents were not in the sight during last five years when I was fighting for Konkan in the Parliament and raising funds for development of this region. Those who are misguiding people do not want to bring development here, MP Dr Nilesh Rane said while speaking at Meman Community Hall in Ratnagiri.
When you selected me to represent you in the Parliament, I didn’t have to introduce this region as everybody knows there that this region sends only literate and educated candidates to Delhi. Veterans like Barrister Nath Pai, Madhu Dandawate have represented this region in the Parliament earlier. I am very small in front of them but they are indeed my idols.
I attended session in the Parliament for seven months and stayed in my constituency for three months to understand issues that this region is facing, even then I didn’t see any opponent working here. This shows that they have single agenda to criticize us without undertaking any development project. They don’t let us bring any project here; neither brings solution on unemployment by their own. Hence, now you all must think, how many jobs will be generated and development of this region will reach which stature if projects like medical college, four-laning of highway, two-laning and electrification of railway, Chipi airport, Jaitapur project etc enters here, he appealed.
Front always stood by people in this region
Congress and NCP front is solving people’s issues for last 10 years in this region, said Uday Samant. The Member of Parliament Dr Nilesh Rane in Central and front government in State has always taken steps for this region’s betterment. So now it is your turn to stand behind Congress, Samant appealed.
He was speaking at a promotional rally organized at Karla. The government has introduced and executed various schemes. We work and then contest polls with development issues only. Opponents only know to do politics of votes which is not sustainable. He further said that ‘Modi wave’ will not influence this region. His Gujarati dominating pattern will not work in Konkan. Avoid this religion based parties and vote for Congress which has secular approach, he appealed.
