Modinagar people decide to boycott BSP candidate
Ghaziabad: Residents and daily commuters of
Modinagar area here have decided to boycott BSP candidate and
sitting MLA Rajpal Singh in the February 28 Assembly elections
alleging that he had failed to fulfill his promise of providing
direct buses to Noida and Delhi.
"Five years ago, BSP sitting MLA Rajpal Singh had
promised that at least two buses would be made available
between Modinagar and Noida in the morning, but no bus has
been provided till now. Moreover, when he was contacted, he
never returned our calls," Convener of Daily Commuters
Association, Naresh Tyagi, said on Sunday.
Tyagi said that daily commuters face a lot of problems on
this route as they have to usually travel in standing position
in the overcrowded Meerut-bound Noida buses.
"Residents have decided not to vote for BSP candidates in
Modinagar and also Muradnagar for overlooking the interest of
daily passengers," he said.
