After making a huge victory from Gujarat’s Vadgam assembly seat Dalit leader Jignesh mevani is all set to take on govenment.
In a statement to The Indian Express the newly elected leader said, “It is devastating that despite all our efforts, the BJP will form the government. But I must say that whoever fought the elections — be it Dalits, Patidars, tribals, or ASHA workers — the fight has been incredible, and we are going to take it forward.”
When asked about his plans as a first-time MLA, Mevani said, “I will explore electoral politics further. At the same time, we will try to bring all the oppressed communities of the country on a stage to defeat the BJP in 2019.”
The new MLA also said he would hand over a memorandum to the Banaskantha collector in Palanpur to get Vadgam’s roads repaired. “The roads are so bad that ambulances cannot enter villages,” Mevani added.
