Deora said, “From small shopkeepers to large industrialists – for everyone, south Mumbai means business. We need to bring businesses back to Mumbai and make job creation for our youth a top priority.” He added, “I knew that (Mukesh Ambani’s) endorsement or Uday Kotak’s endorsement would get more attention than others but I’m very proud, I’m equally proud that I’m being endorsed by paanwalas, by small traders …”
Earlier, Milind Deora had also participated in campaigns related to Mukesh Ambani’s Jio telecom network.
Significantly, this news comes amid when Mukesh Ambani’s brother, Anil Ambani, is being targeted by Congress leaders, especially party president Rahul Gandhi, in the Rafale deal in every election rally.
