Describe yourself in three words.
An empathetic person.

Reviving community glory, which would mean, happiness, cohesiveness and solidarity. These were the essence on which our forefathers built their lives around.

One aspect you like and dislike in the ongoing election process?

I’m born and brought up in a village setting school and worked in a village. So I understand and comprehend the needs and ways forward to bring change in the community. I can be a real agent of change.

The first thing you will do if you win.
If I win, I would thank my kings for having groomed and exposed me to be one who I am today, my supporters in bestowing the trust and confidence on me, and my parents for nurturing and guiding me to become a person that I am today.
I would return to the people of my constituency almost immediately and in consultation with them, work towards convergence of priority activities and set a timeline for each.

Social media, a boon or bane in this election for you?
Both good and bad. Media is important not only in elections but in the pursuit of moving ahead with our policies and plans. However, social media is thriving on a negative note.
