The society needs heroes more than it needs politicians. But if it gets a politician, who is ready to play hero in order to resolve the problems in the public sphere, can there be anyone better. Anardeen Khan, born in Sikar, Rajasthan, is one such new-age political figure who’s got the skills to turn the tide in favor of the most deprived sections of society. In return, he has received immense love and respect from the people of his district.
It is something that he shares with his idol in politics, Dr. B.R. Ambedkar, who was a great leader and public figure in the aftermath of Indian independence.
Talking about his inspiration as a politician, Anardeen Khan says, “I have read Baba Saheb Ambedkar’s life and works in detail and I want to propagate his ideals in personal as well as public life. His persona is inspiring for me and others like me who want to lead the public, but stay close to the common man.”
Anardeen’s day begins with public meetings with people from different parts of the district, who travel to his home to seek help to solve their financial troubles, job issues, social problems, etc. Staying in constant touch with the people every day helps this emerging political figure in Sikar keep his ear to the ground. For that, he doesn’t mind waking up even at midnight, if it means his presence could help resolve some issue or another. He continues to serve his people with a smile on his face.
No wonder that he is considered to be a hero in his region. He is always ready to help people in various public works, whether it be building a healthcare centre, in improving a school’s infrastructure or constructing a road to a remote village.
Khan is a leader for people from across the social spectrum, as he explains, “I fight for everyone in the society, who needs my help. Going beyond caste barriers, my fight is for a corruption-free society, where the poorest and most downtrodden of the people don’t feel neglected anymore.”
A truly inspiring young man, Anardeen Khan is a role model for the new generation of politicians who want to use politics as a means of social progress.
