Aditi Chopdekar is the youngest face in Babush Monserratte panel for the CCP. In an interview to www.goanewshub.com, she said that she is confident to bring in change in the ward no 18 where she is contesting.
How much are your prospects of victory?
I am confident about my win from ward 18 (OBC Women) because the response I have received during my door-to-door campaign is simply amazing. People wanted new face to come and address the issues in new way.
Why did you chose to contest on Babush Panel?
I have been born and brought up in Mala and people have seen me growing in our area. I accept I don’t have much field experience but Atanasio Monserrate sir has trust in my candidature and I will not put him down. I have faith in his way of working and his vision for our city of Panaji. I feel I can address and resolve lot of issues of our ward under his able leadership and guidance.
Without any experience, do you think that you will be able to govern?
Yes ofcourse! Everyone is new in some or the other field. This will be my debut in CCP from my ward and I am confident that I can govern it well as I have a good team and well versed youth advisor/guide.
What are your assurances to the people?
My assurances to people are simple and clear. As corporator, my job is to look after the ward and represent my ward people at CCP to solve their issues. Things that are complicated I shall seek support from our leader Hon’ble MLA Atanasio Monserrate sir and assure that it is delivered. I will make sure my ward and surrounding areas are maintained clean and hygienic. Everyone has their own toilets and deadwalls are built in time to avoid inconvenience.
Do you feel that Panaji is neglected city?
Panaji has been ranked 16 on Ease of Living index in all India. This shows the city is not neglected by our CCP and MLA.
What would be the first thing that you would do once you get elected?
Once elected, I would like to start working from day one on the issues affecting people. I shall prioritise my list and work on it.
