  • He is pitted against Shiv Sena's Arvind Sawant from Mumbai South constituency
  • The state of Maharashtra is in its last leg of Lok Sabha elections 2019 with 17 out of state's 48 seats polling on Monday

With the country voting in the fourth phase of elections begins on April 29, 72 seats across 9 states are in poll fray. The state of Maharashtra is in its last leg of Lok Sabha elections 2019 with 17 out of state's 48 seats polling on Monday. As the voting commenced at 07;00 hours, Congress' Milind Deora reached the polling booth to exercise her franchise.

After casting his vote, Milind Deora conveyed his message to the voters:

"South Mumbai is India's economic nerve centre. Everyone in South Mumbai is engaged in some or the other commercial activities. From a small paanwala to large industrialists, and I am grateful that everyone from small traders to paanwalas everyone has come in support of my candidature on a personal level. In my opinion one of the biggest issues in our country today is jobs. I have met thousands of young boys and girls who are highly educated but don't have jobs. And the only way to fix the job problem is to encourage industry to create jobs. There was a time when people use to come to me and say can you please get us a job in government company, today people want to work in a private company. They want to work in a private sector, people's aspirations have changed and if we don't encourage industry enterprise, entrepreneurs to flourish I don't think we will solve the job problem. "
 

He then took to twitter hinting who did he vote for:

Milind Deora is Congress candidate for South Mumbai. Last week, Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani endorsed his candidature saying:  "Milind is the man for South Mumbai. Having represented South Mumbai for 10 years, I believe that Milind has in-depth knowledge of social, economic, and cultural ecosystem of the South Mumbai constituency. Both micro-enterprises and large businesses can thrive in Mumbai so that attractive, new employment opportunities can be created for our talented young women and men,” Ambani said praising the Congressman.
