Pune: I Will Get Elected by a Margin of at least 55,000 Votes; Vasant More Exudes Confidence in His Candidature


Pune: Almost a month after leaving the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena, and exploring his options with Mahavikas Aaghadi by meeting various leaders of the city and state, Vasant More has finally held the hand of Prakash Ambedkar and thus Vanchit Bahujan Aaghadi (VBA). On Tuesday night, VBA announced the candidature of Vasant More for the Pune Lok Sabha seat.

This is a significant development from the perspective of the Pune Lok Sabha seat, as More’s candidature sets the stage for a three-way contest, pitting him against Mahayuti’s official candidate, Murlidhar Mohol, and Mahavikas Aaghadi’s Ravindra Dhangekar.

Reflecting on his decision to join VBA, More acknowledged the challenges he faced after leaving MNS, a party he had been associated with for 25 years. “The past month has been tough,” More admitted. “I served as a corporator in the Pune Municipal Corporation for three terms, contributing to comprehensive development in the Katraj ward.”

Detailing the circumstances leading to his departure from MNS, More cited internal discord and negative reports about him within the party hierarchy. Despite seeking a nomination from Mahavikas Aghadi, More did not receive it. However, Prakash Ambedkar’s decision to nominate him for the Pune Lok Sabha seat renewed his political journey.

Expressing gratitude to Ambedkar for the trust placed in him, More exuded confidence in his electoral prospects, predicting victory by a margin of 55,000 votes. “I have worked alongside both Mohol and Dhangekar in the Pune Municipal Corporation,” More remarked. “They are my friends, and I refrain from personal criticism in this election.”

Meanwhile, More affirmed his commitment to addressing citizens’ concerns and standing against policies and mismanagement detrimental to their interests. “I trust the people of Pune to recognise my track record of service and support my candidature,” More concluded, setting the stage for a spirited electoral contest in Pune.
