Speaking to AAB , he said
It was an ambition to become an IAS officer I have cleared one step and passed the UPSC exams at the first attempt which made me over joyous. It’s not my dream alone but it was a dream of my family and friends which I have been able to fulfill. I will work wholeheartedly for a better India and at whatever position I am in today it is all because of them. Wherever I go, I will work wholeheartedly for a better India.
He further added, my family was my strength and at whatever position I am in today it is all because of them my Uncles Kiran Y Nippanikar, Milind Sulgekar, aunty Laxmi Sulgekar (Nippanikar).
He further added, Please focus on your career goals, make plans and learn to execute them. Always remember who you are, where you have come from. Be prepared to struggle with determination, dedication and make your goals your passion.
Listen to your inner self and work hard. Also, don’t waste time on unproductive activities on the Internet .
Moreover, I want to see more and more people from Belagavi into the bureaucracy working to build a better India for all of us. I am always available for guidance
