The country is in need of fresh ideas, and out-of-the box thinkers.- Dy CM Manish Sisodia
“I have seen politics from both sides of the spectrum, as a journalist and as a politician. Today, our country is in need of better lawmakers who think out-of-the-box. We need leaders, bureaucrats and politicians who strive to provide quick resolutions to glaring problems. When it comes to ensuring proper healthcare facilities, tackling issues related to pollution, providing quality education in schools, we need people who would not hesitate to take on an out-of-the-box approach and come up with ideas to solve these issues,” he said.
