Bharatiya Janta Party Candidate Faridabad: - Having won his first Lok Sabha election in 1991 from Faridabad, the mining entrepreneur-turned-politician shifted to Meerut Lok Sabha constituency (Uttar Pradesh) in 1999, comfortably winning the seat on the Congress symbol during a pro-BJP wave. He switched back to Faridabad Lok Sabha constituency, winning in 2004 and 2009.
(Faridabad MP Candidate) Faridabad, March 19: Terming the tax collected at Badarpur toll plaza as a kind of “cruelty tax” (Jazia), the BJP candidate from here, Krishan Pal Gurjar, has promised to remove the barrier in case the party was voted to power in the forthcoming elections. Speaking to mediapersons after the announcement of his candidature, Gurjar said the people wanted relief from the corrupt and inept governance of the Congress. He charged the ruling Congress government of turning the city into a hub of land mafia. He said the imposition of toll tax on the border between Faridabad and Delhi was like a Jazia tax, adding that it was only the BJP which could provide relief to commuters from such an unwanted burden. Alleging that the state government, in its past two tenures, provided a free hand to property mafia, he said the authorities too misused the provisions of Sections 4 and 6 of the Land Acquisition Act by acquiring farmers’ land forcibly and then handing it over to the builders at throwaway prices. Challenging the outgoing Congress MP to explain why the city lagged behind in terms of development, in comparison to the neighbouring cities of Gurgaon and Noida, he said it was mainly due to apathetic attitude of the state government, which minted money in the name of providing CLUs and NOC to the builders and land mafia. He said rampant corruption and lack of control over official machinery had forced a large number of industrial units and business houses to leave the city. (BJP Haryana) Claiming that Gujarat had achieved the best growth model in the country, he said the BJP would ensure such a model in the state and in the constituency in case it was voted to power. He said Faridabad would not only get a special package, but other important instruments of growth as well.
