Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani endorsed Congress leader Milind Deora in a campaign video released by the South Mumbai Lok Sabha candidate on Wednesday.

In the video, Ambani praised Deora for his work in his constituency. “Milind is the man for South Mumbai,” Ambani says in the beginning of the video.

“Having represented South Mumbai for 10 years, I believe that Milind has in-depth knowledge of social, economic, and cultural ecosystem of the South Mumbai constituency. Both micro-enterprises and large businesses can thrive in Mumbai so that attractive, new employment opportunities can be created for our talented young women and men,” Ambani said.

“Milind truly represents Mumbai ka connection. I genuinely belive Milind understands and relates to a Mumbaikar. His family has been associated with Mumbai for a long time,” Uday Kotak said in the video.
