FACE OFF: Would your party support and project a woman CM candidate in Uttarakhand? Answer: Ravi Kumar Jain

Yes, most definitely, we would. If there are capable female candidates we would definitely support them. Especially since the leader of our party is a woman herself, and she is considered to be an iron lady. She has been the CM four times. She’s well educated, and always fights for the emancipation of women.

I have a personal anecdote that I quite fondly remember whenever I think of Mayawati ji; when she became the CM in 2007, I remember, she gave an interview where she spoke about how a dialogue with the late Kashiram changed her life forever.

She was preparing for IAS, and when asked by Kashiram why did she want to become a civil servant, she said so that she could work for the betterment of her people. In response, he said, do not fix your aim on being a DM, but aim to be a CM, only then will you be able to achieve your goals. She hasn’t looked back side. Regardless of whatever is said about her, she does have a vision and respects work as well as feedback.
