At 27, hes one of the youngest candidates who jumped in the fray for the upcoming Nagpur Municipal Elections on February 21, 2017. As per reports, Bhushan Shriwas, a nominee from Kendriya Jan Vikas Party (KJVP), will fight the poll battle against heavyweights Vikas Thakre or Praful Gudadhe Patil (Congress) and Vijay Raut (BJP), from ward 38 (Subhash Nagar to Hingna including Jaitala and Shivangaon).
Shriwas who is an MBA from GH Raisoni School of Business Management hails from a family with good academic background. While his father Omprakash Shriwas is an advocate, his mother Kalpana Shriwas is a doctor. Shriwas, who happens to be the youth president of his party (KJVP), has also brought laurels to the country as an international chess player. I’ll surely win and make a difference amongst people’s lives. Today, people need youngsters, with a radical mindset and approach, said Shriwas, who’s done his schooling from St. Xaviers School, Nagpur.
Described as a bright and hardworking student by his teachers, Shriwas says that he has always been inclined towards politics. On being asked about the reason for contesting the upcoming local body elections, he said, No concrete development has ever happened in Nagpur. I want to be the change people want to see. Since decades, various political parties have been just giving false hopes to the common man. Nagpur, despite being home to political bigwigs, still remains underdeveloped at large.
When asked about his agenda for Nagpur’s betterment, he said that Nagpur’s traffic situation, which has worsened, primarily needs improvement. This is possible only if systematic and adequate parking lots are created. But, despite assurances, our leaders have failed to demarcate any suitable place for parking. Due to the concerned authorities’ slackness, new commercial buildings continue to be raised without leaving ample parking space. Also, the rise in the number of vehicles is worsening the situation. I want to curb traffic and resolve parking issues first.
Speaking about the condition of roads and the perennial problem of potholes in Nagpur to Nation Next, Shriwas, a resident of Hingna, had a ready retort, I’ve seen people losing their lives in accidents due to potholes and poor roads. The quality of material used in making roads must be thoroughly inspected. Shriwas further commenting on sanitation and the garbage that is littered all around, said, Despite the garbage collection system being revamped, garbage is still littered everywhere. Various playgrounds have become a dumping ground for waste. Sewers are not cleaned regularly. At many places, illegal constructions have been done on drains, thus making cleaning difficult. Also, public toilets too are in a shoddy situation. A separate storm water system is a major demand which leaders have ignored big time, given its high cost. I want to make sure I resolve all these issues for the common man. I want to be available for the people 24*7.

Nagpur: Married man accused of girlfriend’s rape commits suicide on Facebook live
A 38-year-old married man named Manish alias Raj Yadav, on Sunday, committed suicide during a Facebook live-stream after allegedly being accused of rape by his girlfriend and her family in Nagpur.
During the live stream, Manish, who was married and a father to three children, stated that his 19-year-old girlfriend, Kajal, along with her family members demanded a sum of five lakh rupees and threatened to press charges of rape if he failed to do so.
On September 6, the situation became grave as the woman’s family accused him of eloping after Kajal went missing from her residence.
The deceased refused the claims of having any sexual relationship with the woman and identified her, her family, and a photo studio operator responsible for his condition. He, then, jumped into the river.
After the live video surfaced online, Kalamna Police launched a search operation and recovered the deceased’s body from the river. Four people have been detained in the case for questioning. Further investigation is underway.
