He believes that his journey with Mukul Sinha changed his life as he was introduced to the disparity amongst caste and class. Soon, he found a purpose in fighting for people’s rights, and interestingly, became a lawyer only to argue one Public Interest Litigation (PIL) for a land case. The more he got involved in various cases, the stronger his will to fight burgeoned. After that, there was no looking back.
In Gujarat Legislative Assembly election, 2017, Jignesh Mevani contested and won the election from the Vadgam constituency, running as an independent candidate.
