Mumbai for polls.

Mumbai goes to poll tomorrow.The outcome shall be interesting as there are no favorites and there is no so called Wave in favor of any one.
Surprisingly the local issues are taking precedence over the big security and terror Planck.
The city of Mumbai fights for its rightful place in the comity of big cities to get the basic amenities like potable drinking water and uninterrupted power supply!
The most basic of facility like travel is in pathetic state as more and more funds are pumped into airport modernization and making flyovers where as majority of Mumbaikars travel by a 100 years old technology of local trains.
I am sure no local leader will take a fast local from Virar of Dombivli!!
The common janta is bound to suffer as very few politicians have voiced concern about the train travel standards in Mumbai.
During peak times the Human density is 17/square meters!!
The story of the sabotage to the chopper of Mr Anil Ambani was scary but now its becoming murky!The main mechanic who found the pebbles and sand in the tank of chopper aws found dead on railway tracks at Vile parle with a note for crime branch?
Now was it a corporate rivalry like in films or a case of some vagabond trying cheap stunts.
Anil Ambani must be feeling the heat.

It is no surprise that the expensive, high-profile services like plane travel get govt attention, while the mass of commoners suffer without basic services. Hopefully, India's democracy is intact enough that the majority can put people in office who will improve this situation.
