Here is what Nayak told OneIndia over a telephonic conversation:
OneIndia: How do you plan to take on political heavyweights like Nandan Nilekani and Ananth Kumar?
Nina P Nayak: Both the gentlemen represent two parties. One talks about their PM candidate and his achievements and the other talks about the party that is known for its corruption. AAP is a people's movement. We are not a rich party, but we have the might. We have the support of the people, media and many professionals. We have a lot of volunteers.
OneIndia: What are the issues that you will be focussing on in your constituency?
Nina P Nayak: Same as the party's vision. The party has been founded on a few basic issues like fighting corruption in India, swaraj for people, transparency in government, welfare of children and women and since I stand for the same issues, I will be focussing on the same in my constituency.
Nayak: My ideologies are in line with that of the AAP
OneIndia: Why did you join the AAP and not any other political party?
Nina P Nayak: My ideologies, my views are in line with that of the AAP. I have seen a lot of corruption around me. Even AAP sprouted from the same issue; corruption. So I thought let me join the party as I wanted to make a difference. I know that the people are with us, we are here so let's see.
OneIndia: What sort of a response have you got from your constituency towards AAP?
Nina P Nayak: The people have been very supportive and they also want to participate in the change. There has been a lot of movement on-ground as it is a people's movement.
