Telangana: Junior doctor to fight elections as independent candidate

Hyderabad: A junior doctor of a Telangana hospital has filed his nomination as an independent candidate from the Musheerabad constituency for upcoming Telangana Assembly polls.

Vijender, who is a junior doctor at Osmania General Hospital said that if he wins from the Musheerabad constituency he will use the government funds in a transparent and accountable way.

“I am pursuing post graduation (final year) in Department of Community Medicine from Osmania Medical College. My intention to enter into politics is to help people. In these seventy years, our elders have elected wrong people due to which we are suffering. It’s not about having experience in politics but about how much we are helping people. If I win from the constituency I will use the government funds in a publically transparent and accountable way,” he told ANI.

“Nowadays common people are spending more money on education and health, people are not preferring government schools due to lack of facilities and infrastructure. If I win I will improve the facilities and quality of education in government schools in my constituency,” he added.

A few days back a 46-year-old software engineer with IT major Infosys had announced to contest as an Independent candidate from the Serilingampally constituency for Telangana polls.

The Telangana Assembly elections are scheduled to be held on December 7 to elect members from 119 constituencies. The counting of votes will take place on December 11.
