Md Moquim (MM): In the past 20 years, the BJD wasn’t able to look into basic issues of the city. There was a disconnect between people and the elected representatives. That’s why the people of Cuttack were looking for an alternative and considering the fact that we have raised these issues proactively among the people since the last elections (Md Moquim had lost by 14,328 votes in 2014), they chose us. To be precise, it is the BJD’s failure to do their work properly that led to its defeat.
MM: This actually depends on the capability of the elected person. We are optimistic about support from the administration. If not, we will compel them by raising our voice or staging protests to hear people’s demands.
MM: Yes, there is. The road from Badambadi to Manglabag can accommodate a flyover. After the drains are covered, we will have a big road from Prabhat Cinema to Chattra Bazaar. Ring Road needs to be widened, as well as the road from Sati Chaura.
