NEWLY elected governor for West New Britain province Sasindran Muthuvel is seen as an agent for change by the people of Central Nakanai of Bialla district.
While speaking during one of Hamamas Trading Ltd’s charity functions at a remote elementary school, he was seen not as a politician but as a prominent leader with a lot of charisma who could inspire and generate hope.
His style seems to be simplicity.
“If it is to be, it is up to me with the challenge. If there is a problem, it is up to me to make a change as an individual, as a member of my family and as part of my society,” he said.
“We frequently expect others to change but we, the ordinary citizens, fail to realise that change starts from you and me as individuals.”
He challenged all the fathers to set quality leadership for their children.
“The child is watching, learning and waiting to follow your footstep, so be conscious of the type of example you set for your kids. Leaders are trained, leaders are not born,” he said.
Even before his campaign and way before his decision to delve into politics, Muthuvel had been an inspiration to the people of the province in influencing positive changes in the community.
“If there is anything I would like to be remembered for, it is that my presence on this earth made a change in people’s lives and I become a tool in the hands of providence as an agent of change,” Muthuvel said.
