elections, which will be held in seven phases across Uttar Pradesh from February 10 and
includes 50 female candidates.

to the Hastinapur seat, her main priority will be developing work and promoting tourism.
“Hastinapur is a tourist place, and there are lots of ancient temples, but people cannot
come here because of the connectivity.
The first thing I will do as an MLA is building a bus stand and railway station for
connectivity. Because when tourism increases here, then people will get employment,” she
She also said she would also be working to help farmers.
“Every year because of flood crops are damaged so I will work for that. I will take this
matter to the state assembly.
There is only one sugar mill here, and because of this, farmers face many problems.
So to save their time, I will open more sugar mills,” she explained.

career in the media and her career in politics.
