I am thrilled to have been given this opportunity to serve. I credit my ability to connect with people for having won their faith and their votes. I campaigned tirelessly throughout the constituency. I know the pulse of the people. I look forward to delivering. I understand India and my constituency from the high rises of Bandra to 70% slums all over. People want change. They want better infrastructure better lives for themselves and their children. They don’t want big talk anymore. They want doers. That’s why they voted for our Government. People have faith that under the leadership of Mr. Modi we will create a better today and keep building on that.
Despite the various challenges I faced from having lost one election to being given a fairly difficult seat to win from, I just never gave up and I will never give up. I want to make changes. That is the need of the hour. I am committed to this country and its people. So come highs or lows, I will be there for them. Always fighting. Always trying.
As children, when we were taught the poem “If” by Rudyard Kipling, there were a couple of lines that never left me. “If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools: I hold them close to my heart.
With the feet planted firmly on the ground and my vision for India close to my heart, I move forward.The real work begins now and I am ready for it.
