Hawkers are not problem, they are part of our system: BJP MP Gopal Shetty
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) heavyweight Gopal Shetty retained Mumbai North Lok Sabha seat, defeating Congress nominee and Bollywood actor Urmila Matondkar by a margin of 4,65,247 votes. In an interview with DNA, Shetty says implementation of hawkers policy, development of amusement park in the city and removal of red tape for the realty sector will be his priorities.
I have always respected Urmila Matondkar and refrained from criticising her, but I repeatedly said that I am opposed to the Congress’ ideology.
By and large, voters were convinced that Prime minister Narendra Modi is a strong leader who effectively handled the situation after the terrorist attack on CRPF jawans in Pulwama.
