Yogendra Puranik from India in Japanese Election

Yogi (real name Yogendra Puranik) (41), a native from Pune, India who was nominated for constitutional democracy in Japan. He also won the first election in Tokyo's Edogawa ward election in the unification district election (21 votes, 22 votes). On the 22nd, Mr. Yogi, who won the 5th place with 6477 votes. He on his national costume said his aspiration "I want to be a bridge between Japanese and foreigners".

His first visit to Japan in 1997 as a university student. "Clean, everyone was kind that I studied in Japan". In 2001 he came again company in Japan as an engineer. It was the Great East Japan Earthquake that triggered a rooting in Japanese society while changing jobs to banks. We visited the affected area using a weekend with a group of Indians in Edogawa Ward. "I made curry(foods) and talked in Japanese. I felt, I am already Japanese. The following year, I acquired Japanese citizenship."

"I aimed at the political path because I wanted to do something for my favorite Japan area. In Edogawa Ward, about 4,300 people, or more than 10% of Indians live in Japan. There are many Chinese and Koreans, but those who do not understand Japanese, especially children, seem to be isolated from the community. I want to be a member who can connect everyone by taking advantage of 20 years of experience in Japan, jumping over nationality, age, and the presence of disability".
