The present Ramtek MP Mukul Wasnik had and has not been doing any significant development works, leave alone striving for people’s welfare. The voters found themselves “untouchables” as they were never given access to meet him and demand resolving of their problems or asking for favours like party posts, jobs in Government, financial assistance or others by any means.
Nagpur News: “He can’t help it. He was born with a silver foot in his mouth.”
That the politics is a totally different ball game, and political situations change fast could be ascertained by the fact from Ramtek MP Mukul Wanik’s present poor state of affairs. Wasnik, who is also a General Secretary of All India Congress Committee, it appears, has developed cold feet as far as contesting Lok Sabha poll from Ramtek Constituency, again. The reasons are obvious.
Firstly, there was no need for him to organize “Chintan Shivir” (Strategy Camp). Secondly, and most importantly, he has deserted the same very people who elected him as Ramtek MP. Thirdly, he had and has not been doing any significant development works, leave alone striving for people’s welfare. The voters found themselves “untouchables” as they were never given access to meet him and demand resolving of their problems or asking for favours like party posts, jobs in Government, financial assistance or others by any means.
In fact, Mukul Wasnik has a habit of keeping away from crowd (Then it may be of voters, supporters, and others except during elections). For the same dirty reason, he was shown the other door rather the Lok Sabha entry by Buldana voters in 2009 general elections. When he was Buldada MP, he shooed away Congress workers, the same workers who worked hard for his victory Lok Sabha elections. The same state of affairs is being witnessed in Ramtek, too. Now, the situation has come to such a pass that the traditional Congress voters are openly demanding another candidate but Mukul Wasnik.
It may be recalled Mukul Wasnik organized a Congress Strategy Camp at Rani Kothi in Civil Lines area of Nagpur. He left no stone unturned to please the 250-strong party workers by providing them delicious and costly food in the A/C Hall twice, promised to resolve their problems. The other Congress leaders who were present at the Camp were not of Mukul Wasnik’s stature and very much junior to him. Any way organizing the Camp had no significance except Wasnik’s interest in checking the pulse of Congress workers and thereby apprising himself about the mood of the supporters. If they were, however, handed over a list fresh responsibilities for the success of candidate (Mukul Wasnik) from Ramtek Lok Sabha seat, his candidature to some extent would have gone well with the workers. But the workers did not show any excitement. And it is obvious also. The confidant of Mukul Wasnik, Deepak till now did not get the party ticket for contesting Assembly elections not to mention a common Congress worker.
