Born in June 1986 in India and coming to Australia as an International Student in February 2007, Nikhil completed a Masters in Information Systems from University of Ballarat and made Australia home. Currently working for the Queensland Government Department of Housing and Public Works, Nikhil has worked in various capacities in the Education Industry, Federal Government, State Governments and their corporations. A happily married man with a three-year-old daughter living in Fitzgibbon, Nikhil has volunteered in various positions for community organizations in Queensland. He is passionate about community service, being heard and making a difference for everyday people.
“My respect for this great nation, my belief of putting Australians First and drive to put people before politics inspired me to stand for One Nation.” Nikhil says that “If I want to see a change for a better Australia, I can’t just wish for it. Instead I’m ready to roll up my sleeves, work towards it and be part of the change.”
Nikhil is passionate about representing the seat of Petrie in Federal Parliament.
“We built our first home in Fitzgibbon and I commute to work in the city and am aware of the problems that our electorate is currently facing. I am here to listen to your issues, I am here to fight for you and make sure our problems are addressed.”
Nikhil believes in Nationalism and feels that Australians and Australian companies should take priority over temporary migrants and multinational companies.
“Immigration should be sustainable rather than untenable. Government at all levels have failed to address the needs of growing population. This puts immense pressure on hospitals, schools, transport and infrastructure”.
Nikhil says that Transport and Infrastructure is one of the biggest problems Petrie is currently facing. Beams Road and Gympie Road intersection is extremely congested and even dangerous for commuters.
With the increasing population; it is hard to secure a seat in state schools and same is the case for receiving treatment in our hospitals. Federal funding has to be provided for improving the health facilities and education opportunities.
Unemployment and the crime rate has also increased and more work needs to be to be taken to reduce both of them and get more youth employed.
Nikhil plans to fight for the people of Petrie across all of these issues and more, and hopes to count on your vote at the next Federal Election.
“I love Australia and the only hope for better nation is One Nation. I want to work for the people of Petrie, I would like to work for the best interest of all Australians and contribute towards making this country a safe place to live.”
