Key issues in Kalyan constituency

Most of the people who live in Ambernath, Ulhasnagar, Kalyan and Dombivli work in business districts of Mumbai such as Nariman Point, Bandra Kurla Complex, Lower Parel and so on. However, these areas are connected only by suburban railways, resulting in packed trains during peak hours. For several years, commuters have been hoping for more public transport options.

One of the major issues that affects citizens in this area is water shortage. It has gotten more difficult this summer as the temperatures soared beyond average several times in the past few weeks. Tanker water supply has become common and so have water cuts. However, it points to poor planning even as more and more construction and development is sanctioned in ever-expanding Mumbai, without adequate attention given to basic infrastructure requirements.

Candidates in news

Dr. Shrikant Shinde, a doctor by profession, has one of the best track records in the parliament. He is the son of Eknath Shinde, who broke away from Uddhav Thackeray and formed a government with the support of the Bhartiya Janata Party. The rebellion has led to a split between political leaders and followers alike. Dr. Shrikant has a different image from that of his father, who was an Anand Dighe protege, known for aggressive street politics.
