Expanding higher education facilities my priority: Gautam Gambhir


Press Trust of India New Delhi
BJP's East Delhi candidate Gautam Gambhir Monday said though the constituency's population saw a tenfold increase in the last four decades, successive governments in the national capital have done nothing special for the expansion of higher education facilities in the area.
Addressing a public meeting in Ghazipur, the cricketer-turned-politician said a "full-fledged campus on the lines of Delhi University's north campus and upgrading of Yamuna Sports Complex" were among his priorities.
"It's sad that though the constituency's population increased tenfold in the past four decades, local governments have done nothing special for the expansion of education facilities," he said.
Appealing to people to vote for the BJP, he said Prime Minister Narendra Modi is committed to making India a strong nation and "we have been clear in taking strong measures against terrorism unlike previous governments".
Gambhir is contesting against AAP's Atishi Marlena and Congress' Arvinder Singh Lovely from the seat. Delhi goes to polls on May 12.
