Her Beliefs

I am Meghana Bordikar-Sakore, I have grown up watching the political and social activities of my father, Shri Ramprasad Bordikar and as a result I believe in the best way possible to work for and trust the welfare of the people around me. We need a very capable political representative to achieve this goal and everything is needed for my constituency to be a perfect representative. I want my people to be available in education and jobs in Parbhani without having to go to education and employment outside Parbhani district. My preference would be for them to get modern infrastructure such as smart city planning, quality education and skills worker training. The intense urge for change has kept me busy in the Parbhani district where I have always worked to improve the quality of education, improve the health of the environment, employment of young people and women empowerment. The path of development is indispensable for Parbhani district. Today Parbhani needs basic facilities, industrial revolution, power and water management, women’s empowerment, education and healthcare.
