Kamathipura – Congress candidate Javed Juneja has geared up for his campaigning from ward no. 213. Initially, he was the corporator of ward no. 223 but due to ward revision, this ward became reserved for women. Then he tried his luck in the ward no. 213 where Congress corporator Manoj Jamsutkar of ward no. 208 was also trying his luck. However, Juneja got the ticket. It is being said that Juneja got the ticket because he is a close aide of MLA Ameen Patel.
Juneja will be contesting against MNS visually impaired candidate Vinod Argile who is considered to be strong. Argile has worked a lot for Kamathipura area whereas Juneja is a newbie.
