Earlier, she successfully won Dhar Zila Panchayat president elections in 2006.She took a plunge in politics to empower poor, especially tribals. Her three priorities for constituency are Dhar-Jhabua rail line construction to join the two tribal-dominated districts, industrialisation and setting up of sugar mills.Savitri is expecting that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will provide strong leadership to the country and turn the country into a developed nation. She says that Modi’s wave, Chouhan’s beneficial schemes and hard labour put in by BJP and RSS cadres helped her to win elections.She says that the primary responsibility of Parliament was to make effective laws and make the country strong.

Stop corruption – A powerful campaign against graft and strict punishment. 5. Normalise relations to Pakistan and China – Effective foreign policy.6.
