In an informal interaction with the media persons on his arrival in the state capital on Thursday, Mr. Bahuguna said "The way people had expressed their faiths on me, my responsibilities towards them has increased manifold," he observed and said that between developmental and negative politics the people of Sitarganj had preferred the former.
