Did you vote in previous elections?

No, I didn’t vote in the previous election as I did not have a voter card. This year I will be voting.

What issues have mattered to you in the past?

Road safety is something that has mattered to me. With the rising population in Pune and increasing number of road accidents and fatalities, road safety has been a major problem. People prefer public transport just to ensure safety. This has increased the demand on the public transport body, and the transport system must be made super-efficient in view of the enormous taxes being charged from residents.

What issues matter to you today?

The issue that matters to me today is mainly corruption. Corruption is everywhere and everyone is somehow a part of it. Corruption has to end and we need strong laws to ensure that it does not hurt the common man. Corruption is a major national problem in our country and has never been checked. The country needs a corruption-free government for putting into practice a strong and vibrant democracy.
