I have been interacting him for so many years and come to conclusion that he is good observer, he always believe in Unity & togetherness policy. The collective decision of the party is his top priority. That’s why he created a neat & clean image in the eyes of small workers besides very good reputation among all the senior leaders of Bhartiya Janta Party.

As you know that BJP will gain the full majority in upcoming Delhi assembly election. Moreover, he is really a visionary BJP leader, so I am sure he’ll lead and guide all the BJP workers and brings them together to do ultimate development of entire Territory. He is a capable leader and he’ll bring prosperity in Delhi also.
