Nadia (WB): Union Finance Minister Pranab
Mukherjee on Sunday said municipal elections have to be fought on
the basis of local issues concerning the people.

"The elections of the Lok Sabha, Vidhan Sabha and the
municipality are different. Municipal elections will have to
be fought on local issues, rather than national ones,"
Mukherjee said while campaigning at Shantipur area of the
district.

Blaming the state government, he said instead of the
scheduled two hours, it took three hours for him to reach the
area due to bad roads.
