Should the legal age for drinking be brought down from 25 to 18?
This culture of drinking is not ours. The West is trying to spoil our youth. I am totally against it; it should be banned.

What is your view on current situation in Pakistan?
It’s like paying for your wrongdoings. What the Taliban is doing with Pakistan is what Pakistan did,and is still doing,with India.

How would you react if someone threw a shoe at you?
Our civilisation does not teach such acts. I know it would not happen to me,but if it did,I would take strict action.

What is the first thing you will do if you are elected?
All-round development is on my mind,but water and education facilities are needed on a priority basis here.

Not much. Delhi is a beautiful city. I would just like to see that citizens get good public transportation facilities so that they don’t need to buy their own vehicles.

If you had to rope in one film actor for your poll campaign,who would it be and why?
Shah Rukh Khan,because people are crazy about him.

What was the last movie you watched?
I don’t see movies. I don’t get time from my work.

Should the legal age for drinking be brought down from 25 to 18?
It should not even be 100. I am not in favour of drinking or smoking.

What is your view on the current situation in Pakistan?
Whatever is happening there is wrong,but I cannot say much on this because when our government comes to power,it will do something about it.

How would you react if someone threw a shoe at you?
I know it would not happen to me and if it happens,I will then see what to do. It’s a publicity stunt.

What is the first thing you will do if you are elected?
There is nothing that comes first or last. I will work for all-round development in my constituency.
