The elections of Ghaziabad Municipal corporation and the mayoral election are in a full swing these days with all the political parties, especially the BJP and the Congress candidates banking on the Uttarakhand votes, which the sources say are in sizeable numbers.
The BJP has given few tickets to the candidates hailing from Uttarakhandi background, more than the Congress party. It is believed that Uttarakhandi votes consist of a majority chunk and is therefore the main deciding factor in several seats of the Ghaziabad municipality and for the election of the Mayor as well.
The union minister and former Army chief Mr. Singh is the BJP MP from here. The party high command has therefore assigned the responsibility to all the BJP MPs of Uttarakhand hills to campaign for the party candidates including the state CM Yogi Adityanath.
The BJP is in advantageous position as it’s in power at the centre, state of UP as well as in Uttarakhand and therefore has no dearth of funds, leaders and resources, whereas on the contrary the Congress and other parties are squeezd in terms of funding and availability of leaders with mass appeal.
However, its also true that in municipal elections local factors and image of the candidate play a crucial role. While the campaigning is in full swing with the majority of candidates banking on the deciding votes of inhabitants of UK background a section of enlightened citizens in social media are appealing to the Ghaziabad electorates not come under the befooling tactics of the ruling party and instead of voting for it, should register their preference for NOTA.
They are furious in view of the non cooperation of the the UP government and the BJP in catching and punishing the killers of two young boys and also failing to trace 6 year old KASHISH for the last two years. All the three hail from Uttarakhand but lived in GHAZIABAD.
It may be recalled that the parents of Atul and Mandeep Negi and 6 year old Kashish Rawat have been running from pillar to posts for justice but of no avail. The criminals are having their last laugh. One can imagine the trauma and anguish being confronted by the poor and hapless parents after losing their young sons and a 6 year old beautiful daughter. These anguishing families are in total disarray emotionally, psychologically, financially and otherwise. No power on earth can compensate their loss. But what about these political parties and the police administration at the helm? Are they for the politicians or rich with clout only. Don’ t they have any concern for the poor, hapless or common citizen of the country. Where are the culprits, killers and kidnappers or traffickers of Atul, Mandeep and Kashish. The nation needs an answer.

गाज़ियाबाद चुनावों में उत्तराखण्ड कोटे से चुनाव लड़ रहे भाजपाई , उत्तराखण्ड के ही किशोरों की असमय मौत पर चुप्पी साधे है, वैशाली के अपने घर के इकलौते चिराग अतुल कोटनाला हो या लाजपत नगर का युवा मनदीप नेगी, आज इनका परिवार सड़को पर उतरकर अपने बच्चों की मौत का इंसाफ माँग रहा है, लेकिन उत्तराखण्ड के पाँचो सांसद, उत्तर प्रदेश सरकार और पुलिस बेरहम बन , आँख कान बन्द किये कुम्भकर्णी नींद से उठने को तैयार नही, फिर किस बिना पर भाजपा के प्रत्याशियों को वोट करेगा उत्तराखण्ड समाज…
*कशिश भी एक ऐसी ही बच्ची है…जिसके माता पिता भी लगभग दो साल से अपनी बच्ची के लिये दर-दर की ठोकरें खा रही है, कुछ करेगी क्या ये सरकारें…???
