How do you see the challenge of getting such a huge responsibility?
I have had experience in the organization for a long time and have also been a Parshad once. That’s why I have a long experience of working in a corporation. This old experience is now working for me. I have experience in both doing public work and getting it done in Municipal Corporation.
Meat and chicken dumps are spreading dirt everywhere in the city, how will the city become clean?
In the old city, cleanliness is being affected due to shops of chicken and meat. Now we will do a survey on it. According to the number of shops in the city, meat markets will be established. The number of meat markets will depend on the number of shops. For this, we will start work after talking to the officials. Strict rules will also be adopted regarding cleanliness.
What are your efforts so that people get individual tap connections?
There are many colonies in the city where people are not getting clean water due to the rule of bulk connection. Water is the first right of every person. My first effort is that everyone should get clean drinking water. After discussing with the officials, an action plan will be prepared regarding the individual connection.
