When you cast your vote will you go by the party or the personality?
I will go by the personality.

What is the first issue you want addressed?
Good roads

What bothers you most about the state/country?
Data shows that the state is growing, but a large percentage of people are still mired in deep poverty, the fear of Maoists continues and so does corruption and unemployment.

Are you satisfied with our politicians?
Not really. They seem to be prioritising party before nation or people.

Do you think politics/elections can improve the life of the common man?
Politics can to an extent, since it might help people to achieve those objectives or development that cannot be realized as individuals. Elections should be seen as an opportunity to change the lives of citizens for the better through judicious decision of voters, but I don’t see many people thinking like that.
