The current Lok Sabha election has boxer and Olympic medalist winner Vijendra Singh fighting on congress ticket while on the hand cricketer Gautam Gambhir contesting as Bhartiya Janata Party contender from east Delhi. These two candidates have been judiciously fielded by their respective parties to have a strong tussle against Aam Aadmi’s party candidate from South Delhi Raghav Chaddha and Atishi Marlena from East Delhi. Being a good at sports does not always ensure that an individual is good in the politics too.
Vijendra singh posted a video on Facebook in which he can seen criticizing the state and central government policies. In that video he went to Mohalla clinic just after it had closed down for the day indicating the lock on the clinic. It has to be mention that Mohalla clinics are opened for 24 hours and vijendra came 20 minutes after the clinic was closed. In another such effort, Vijendra arrived at Tigri in Deoli constituency of South Delhi and stood in front of heap of crap condemning the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and harwork done by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi.
It does not require any effort to stand in front of camera, show a pile of garbage and roast the administration and the municipality, but Vijendra neglects the administrative past record of the Tigri and the huge task that areas like tigri possess to the Delhi government. Gautam Gambhir on the other hand too could have organized his campaign far superior. He could have initiated by questioning why the Trans Yamuna Development is inoperative. The party in majority hasn’t been able to resolve this issue but rather the BJP candidate is seen firefighting Atishi’s claims over holding a rally without prior authorization which directly shows the lack of the attention from the genuine issues.
