Pune, 22nd March 2024: Pune, a city known for its resilience and discernment, is gearing up for a transformative electoral season. Amidst a backdrop of disillusionment with past representatives, the announcement of Ravindra Dhangekar, a Congress stalwart, as the Lok Sabha candidate has sparked a wave of optimism among his supporters.

In a candid expression of solidarity with the people he hopes to represent, Dhangekar, a seasoned activist and Congress MLA from Kasba Peth constituency, resonated with the sentiments of Punekars, emphasizing their collective resolve not to be swayed by hollow promises. “Pune has been betrayed in the past. Its issues neglected, its voice silenced. But Punekars will not be deceived again,” Dhangekar affirmed. “They seek a champion, a tireless advocate, not just a politician. And it’s this commitment to action that will secure victory for us all.”

The announcement of Dhangekar’s candidature was met with jubilation across the city, as supporters from the Mahavikas Aghadi joined in spirited celebrations, heralding the dawn of a new era in Pune’s political landscape. The choice of a candidate hailing from humble origins struck a chord with the electorate, symbolizing a departure from entrenched political elites towards grassroots representation.

Acknowledging the faith reposed in him by both his party and the people, Dhangekar expressed gratitude for the nomination, underscoring his unwavering dedication to serving Pune. “I’ve walked these streets for decades, listening to the pulse of the people, addressing their concerns. My candidacy is not just about me; it’s about the aspirations of every Punekar,” he affirmed.

However, Dhangekar’s optimism is not without critique, particularly aimed at the incumbent BJP. With a pointed critique of the ruling party’s tenure, he highlighted pressing issues such as traffic woes, pollution, and rising crime rates that have plagued Pune under BJP governance. “The BJP has failed Pune. Their silence on vital issues speaks volumes. Punekars are yearning for change, and they will deliver a resounding verdict at the polls,” Dhangekar asserted.

Dispelling notions of internal discord within the Congress ranks, Dhangekar rallied his colleagues, emphasizing unity in purpose and a shared commitment to Pune’s progress. “There’s no room for division within our party. We stand united, driven by a common goal: the development and prosperity of Pune,” he declared.
