Locals complain that they were “facing’ the twin challenges of “unemployment’ and “inflation”.
A local said, “Unemployment and inflation are the biggest problems. There is a great recession in exports in Moradabad as per the policies of the government. Moradabad is an export-based (hub) and is known worldwide. The government should look at these things and provide relaxation”
Vijay Kumar, another local said, “The candidate for the Lok Sabha constituency should do good work for Moradabad. He should not sit in Delhi and do nothing”.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has demonstrated a solid majority in UP in the previous two Lok Sabha elections, gaining the majority of seats.
