INDIA: This episode of 360-degrees Live Show features an interview of Dr. Parinay Fuke, the former Guardian Minister of Maharashtra State, India.
Dr. Fuke, the former Guardian Minister of Maharashtra State, India, is a visionary leader from the Vidarbha region.
In an interview at Transcontinental Times 360 degree live show, he has shared his journey from a social activist to an independent corporator of Nagpur Municipally Corporation to an MLC (Member of Legislative Council) to a Guardian Minister. He also expressed his views on current scenarios in Maharashtra state.
In an in-depth interview in a 360-degree live show, he first shared his experience regarding his journey into politics. His grandfather was a freedom fighter and a close ally of Late Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel.
His father got a legacy and had worked for the Congress party as a Zilla Parishad member. When asked why he then joined Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) he replied, “Because BJP is the party for all, unlike Congress Party which follows dynasty politics.”
While talking about BJP’s not-so-successful tenure in Bhandara constituency as they have got in Gondia Constituency in Nagar Panchayat elections, he told with a wry smile, “Don’t worry, we will also form the government ( local) in Bhandara too.”
Attacking the present state government, he told that the present government is not at all paying any attention to the development of Gondia- Bhandara forest range. He further added that during his tenure as the Forest Minister in 2019, he had chalked plans for making this forest range as Tiger Project. He lamented that the project has taken a back seat now.
Finally, he concluded the interview by sharing beautiful quotes from a poem by Robert Forst in rhyme with his plan in politics-
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
