  • I promise won't disappoint you all ever and would work even harder for people of here.
  • I want to compliment Uttar Pradesh Government & especially CM Adityanath for organising the Pashudhan Arogya Mela. This mela will benefit the farmers across the state.
  • For farmers, milk from milch animals is the biggest source of income. The welfare scheme will prove to be a boon for them.
  • For us, governance is not about vote banks or winning elections. Our priority is development of the country. For me country is above the vote bank.
