Mumbai, Sep 13 (IANS) Contestant Sanoj Raj from Bihar couldn’t get the right answer to the jackpot question worth Rs 7 crore, but he is still thrilled about being the first crorepati on the 11th season of “Kaun Banega Crorepati” (KBC), hosted by megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

An IAS aspirant, Sanoj is currently based in Delhi, preparing for his UPSC exams. His interests lie in policy-making and implementation. He wants to make policies regarding health and environment.

When Sanoj faced the question that would win him one crore rupees, the 25-year-old, despite knowing the answer, used the last remaining lifeline.

When Big B asked why he chose the lifeline when he knew the answer, Sanoj said that since he wouldn’t be able to use the lifeline for the Rs 7-crore question, he thought he might as well use it rather than let it go waste.

“I am feeling ecstatic on this win. It’s a landmark moment in my life and I only intend to move further hereon to achieve many more milestones. I believe hard work, passion and dedication towards your goals will make process of achieving them a lot more enjoyable,” Sanoj said.

“At present my joy is short-lived as I am focusing on my UPSC exams which as scheduled starting next week,” he added.

Lucknow, Dec 7 : The death of the Unnao rape victim has stirred up the Uttar Pradesh politics with Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra rushing to meet the victim’s family in Unnao, and Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav sitting on a ‘dharna’ outside the Vidhan Sabha, here on Saturday.

Akhilesh Yadav, sat on a protest along with senior party leaders to protest against the police inaction in the case, a day after she breathed her last at the Safdarjung hospital in New Delhi.

Priyanka Gandhi, who was on a two-day visit to the state left for Unnao to meet the family members of the victim.

Earlier in the day, Priyanka Gandhi took a swipe at the Yogi Adityanath government in the state. She tweeted: “It is a failure of all of us that we could not give her justice. Socially, we are all guilty, but it also shows the law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh.”

She questioned as to why atrocities on women were rampant in the state and given the previous incident in Unnao, why no protection was provided to the victim. “Keeping in mind the previous incident of Unnao, why did the government not give immediate protection to the victim? What action was taken against the officer who refused to register her FIR? Everyday there are cases of atrocities against women in Uttar Pradesh, what action is the government taking on this?”, she tweeted.
