“We are quite optimistic we will win the election simply because we are different, we are unique in the sense that we are coming in as, probably some will say the ‘under dogs’ but we know the values that we are going to add.

We took a poll of the people of the state and we are certain that people want ‘change’ in the state, they are tired of the status quo, tired of the same set of people that have been ruling the state for the past two decades and definitely need a change”.
