Born on 23rd May, 1963, Prakash makes a home with his wife, Jayanti and the couple’s daughter, Urvi. Notwithstanding a hectic schedule and growing demands on his time, he maintains close links with the Freeport community and many of its institutions.
Prakash is equally at home in the company of Prime Ministers and Presidents, as he is in the presence of the ordinary man on the street, and confesses to having a preference for the latter. It is testament to his versatility and down-to-earth nature. It is this versatility, combined with unquestionable academic and intellectual competence that qualifies Prakash for a prominent role in the country’s politics.
He is adamant that politics must never be about the politicians or about their self-interests. Rather, he holds firmly to the view that politics must be about the people whom the politicians must serve. His belief is that being entrusted with political office should be an honour to the person so entrusted; an honour that is accompanied by tremendous responsibility.
Prakash rejects categorically any kind of politics that places the politician above those he represents and which catapults the politician to the role of master and the population to the role of servants. Quite the opposite, he embraces whole-heartedly the politics that places politicians alongside the people he serves in which everyone works together and in which the politician becomes the adhesive that holds everyone together.
It is a position consistent with the views of the Congress of the People and which makes Prakash Ramadhar adequately qualified to hold the position of Political Leader.
