A BJP MP’s Daughter Is Selling Mangoes To Give A Powerful Message To The Youth

The daughter of an eight-time BJP MP sells mangoes on the streets of Jharkhand. Before you jump to the conclusion that she is doing this because of some financial strain (that’s unlikely anyhow!), allow us to enlighten you that she is merely doing this to deliver a great message – pride in one’s work.

Chandravati Saru is the daughter of former deputy speaker of the Lok Sabha Kariya Munda.

She is a professor by profession but finds selling mangoes in Khunti, 40 kms from Ranchi, a way of remaining connected to her roots besides doing some charity from the money she makes from selling mangoes.


Saru draws inspiration from her father, who still lives in a mud hut. She told India Today that the youth of the country should not be ashamed of taking agriculture as a profession.



Munda, 77, lives in a mud hut at Anigara, a tribal village. When not in the Parliament, he can be seen ploughing his field, clearing weeds and shrubs. Also, his district is Naxal-infected but his home remains unguarded.
