“Do you think my re-election has anything to do with academic qualifications? It has everything to do with my work,” says Makwana, reeling off his daily schedule. “I am up at four in the morning and if there have been complaints relating to water supply or something that affects individual or community life in my ward, I am on the spot. Despite my early morning rounds, I am in my ward office by 9 am, where I remain up to 1 pm, when I break for lunch to be back by four and stay put till eight. All the while attending to people’s problems,” he adds.

Another BJP corporator, from Gandhigram, Babubhai Ahir, says, “Mine is work on the ground, not pushing files.” Both of Babubhai’s sons have passed their higher secondary examinations, are married and are well-settled. “Not once in my life have I felt  the absence of a degree. My work in public life speaks much more than deg­rees,” says the three-time office-holder. It is the will to be of service to people that matters, he adds.
