People here want a local face, not a celebrity: Gugan Singh

first_imgA man with age over 70, clad in a yellow kurta is going door to door of every village house in North West Delhi. Once a BJP MLA, now AAP’s Lok Sabha candidate for North West Delhi, Gugan Singh Ranga talks exclusively to Sayantan Ghosh on his poll journey. North West Delhi this time has a tough fight like other seats, what are the issues you are focusing on? This is one of the most underdeveloped and neglected areas in Delhi. After the AAP government was formed, many development works were started. Now work on water pipelines and roads are going on everywhere. But the government has limitations in terms of lands, law and order, these are very big issues. The people have very less access to public amenities, here we need new colleges, universities and also engineering college but the state government does not have the power to do that. I am addressing these issue and telling people about why the AAP raised the demand of the full statehood. Also Read – Odd-Even: CM seeks transport dept’s views on exemption to women, two wheelers, CNG vehiclesThis is a schedule caste seat and you yourself come from Jatav caste, how will this caste factor work in your favour? This is constitutionally an SC seat but the AAP is not doing any caste centric politics. I have a very good relationship with people of all the castes and even with upper caste people who live here. After the AAP came to power, we have worked for the development of every section of people. We have not done religious and caste-based politics, therefore, I have support from all the sections. It is bizarre that BJP has given the ticket to Hans Raj Hans who is not an SC but a Muslim. We have already put forward all the proofs of this illegal act by BJP. Also Read – More good air days in Delhi due to Centre’s steps: JavadekarDelhi dehat as this area is known as is always considered as a place where poor people stay and in mainstream people do not talk about these areas much, how will you deal with these issues? This is the biggest pain of the people North West Delhi constituency. A person who resides in South Delhi is a resident of Delhi and a person from Narela is also a resident of Delhi but people call this area Delhi dehat which means rural Delhi or outer parts of Delhi. One of the major reasons for such perception is because these areas never got a leader who is connected to the ground. To represent the sentiment of these people, you need to walk through the villages of North West, you need to talk to the people, you should know what they are lacking and what they need. After AAP came to power, these areas started developing. I will represent this area to a larger platform and tell the people that this is as much Delhi as like any other section of the state. This time BJP candidate is a celebrity and in comparison, you are just a local face, how is this fight of global vs local? Here people want a face who understands their pain, their demands, their, struggle, their little emotions. These little emotions are very different from songs or cinema or limelight things. The emotions here are raw and connected to the ground, the only person who belongs to this place relate to these needs. Hans Raj Hans from BJP is a great singer and must be a great celebrity but people of this constituency know that he will never stay with them if he wins because his life is very different. But I stay here and always stayed here, served the people. I think that by giving the ticket to an outsider, BJP has made AAP’s chances brighter to win this seat. People of this constituency understand the motive of BJP and these old tricks will not work here.last_img read more

Former Buckeye Cameron Heyward juggles academics preparations for NFL

After lining up a job that guarantees a multimillion-dollar contract, the best benefits an employee can hope for and fame and recognition as the newest member of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ dominant defense, it’d be easy to throw away your textbooks and forget lecture halls ever existed. But former Ohio State defensive end Cameron Heyward isn’t taking the easy way out. Even after being drafted in the first round of last month’s NFL draft, Heyward still attends classes and will graduate with a degree in education at the end of this quarter. The motivation to finish college all comes from within. Heyward knows he wants to earn a degree and do something that has not been done before by anyone in his immediate family. “I’m pushing myself,” Heyward said. “I want to impress my family. I’ll be the first one to graduate and that’s just a big accomplishment.” Now that he’s been drafted, his textbooks aren’t the only books he needs to study. Heyward was fortunate to get a playbook from his Pittsburgh coaching staff, something many draft picks weren’t able to do as a result of the NFL lockout. He said the playbook was the first thing he asked for when he arrived in Pittsburgh on April 29. “The playbook is like a magazine,” Heyward said. “I could read it all day, but I’ve still got to look at my textbooks.” Reading his textbooks might not help him a great deal when he’s studying opposing offenses and which quarterback he’ll be trying to sack on Sundays, but it could end up having a bigger impact sooner than he imagined. If the NFL and NFL Players Association don’t reach an agreement on the labor situation, delaying or canceling the season, Heyward said he will take advantage of the opportunity to complete his student-teaching duties. Heyward would be teaching elementary aged children. “I definitely want to do my student-teaching,” Heyward said. “I didn’t get a chance to do it, and I won’t until after my career. But if I can go into that … that’d be so much fun and that’s truly a dream of mine.” If an agreement is reached and Heyward ends up on the field instead of in the classroom, he will get a chance to return to Pittsburgh, where he’s already been welcomed by some of the town’s biggest celebrities. Heyward said Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger called him and wide receiver Hines Ward sent him a text message to congratulate him. With offensive weapons like Roethlisberger and Ward and a defense that has allowed the fewest points in the league two of the past three seasons, Heyward sees no reason why his new team shouldn’t compete for a championship every year. “I like to think we have the best defensive line in the NFL right now,” Heyward said. “It’s unbelievable. We should be in the Super Bowl every year.” Roethlisberger and Ward won’t be the only ones welcoming Heyward to the Steel City — Heyward was born in Pittsburgh and said he still has a lot of family in the area. “It’s like going back to your old stomping grounds,” he said. “I’m very grateful and I feel blessed to be in this situation. Not a lot of players get to say they’re going somewhere that they actually know a lot about. “I get to see my extended family a little bit more. I’m a big family guy and the chance to see them a little bit more, I love it.” Heyward said he’s “ecstatic” about being a Steeler but that it hasn’t yet hit him full force that he will be playing professional football in his hometown. “I’m just an average kid right now,” he said. “It hasn’t really set in to me that I’m going to be a Pittsburgh Steeler yet.” Heyward is just an average kid who stands 6-foot-5 and pushes 300 pounds, plays defensive end for one of the NFL’s elite franchises and goes to class on weekday mornings. read more
