“The Journey of a politician in India is a struggle, a daily struggle with system, social taboos, & a constant call of the conscience to bring the change you seek in the world! And like any other Leader would say- ‘It is one beautiful journey, though a roller coaster ride but you evolve in the process’….. There is so much I intend to give, to do for India & its people, and after 42 years in politics,

I still believe the journey has just started & there remains several milestone to achieve.” – Kailash Vijayvargiya
