Mumbai: Union Minister of State for IT and Communications Milind Deora will be taking on Shiv Sena, MNS and AAP candidates as he tries to win the South Mumbai seat for the third time in next month's Lok Sabha elections.
Deora had won the seat for the second time in 2009, in a three-cornered fight with Bala Nandgaonkar (MNS) and Mohan Rawle (Shiv Sena).
This time around, his fight will be with Nandgaonkar, Shiv Sena's Arvind Sawant and AAP's Meera Sanyal.
The 37-year-old MP initiated the Bhendi Bazar cluster development project and pushed for the Eastern Freeway project and the second phase of the Rs 80-crore Marine Drive makeover project.
He claims credit for the lighthouse tourism policy, guidelines to regulate cell tower radiations and the state's decision to set up a housing regulator.
