|What are your roles and responsibilities in the Modi Government||
|How was your political journey?||
I had the privilege of occupying the following important posts in government.
|Why did you join politics ?||
I worked for improvement of various facilities in my locality. This brought into contact with political parties. Due to my energy, enthusiasm and hard work the party members of BJP invited me to join them which I accepted.
In 1992 I was asked to run for elections for the first time. But I declined as I had got success in my dye-making business and wanted to continue that.
It was the Mumbai unit President of BJP at that time Hon. Ram Naik ji who urged me to reconsider. Finally I accepted and contested elections. Since then I have won 6 times and currently am the Lok Sabha MP.
|What are your top demands for the constituency ?||
|What is your biggest achievement||
|What is the reform which you would like to bring ?||
Personally I would like to bring changes into the mentality of the bureaucracy. The public faces a lot of hurdles due to the attitude of the bureaucracy . I want to arouse the nations youth to bring change in this.
|What is your message to the youth of your constituency?||
There is plenty of scope in this country in all occupations. The students should work hard and give their best. But getting 90-95% need not be the only aim of the students.
Skill development initiatives are there and they can take benefit of those too. The country will not thrive just because everyone wants to become an officer.
|What is your message to the students of your constituency?||
Personally I would like to bring changes into the mentality of the bureaucracy. The public faces a lot of hurdles due to the attitude of the bureaucracy .
I want to arouse the nations youth to bring change in this. Even to those who have been selected in IAS / IPS cadre should know that from my 25 years of experience in the field of public service I believe that all of the hurdles faced by the public can be removed if the IAS officers work with passion.
The next generation should note this. It is important to be a great person and secure yourself financially. But a person should also work for the benefit of the public as they are looking up towards the officers to solve their grievances.
