I always wanted to do something for the cause of people, especially women. You can see women hardly get opportunities in politics as there is no level playing field
As an MLA she has focused on improving the state of education in Punjab and her constituency. She has also worked towards reducing farmer suicides and helping farmers get better price for their agricultural produce. In addition to that, she aims on improving the state of healthcare in Talwandi Sabo.
