Meet Shanaz Khan..Youngest, first MBBS Sarpanch



New Delhi, March 19: Women are scaling new heights with every passing day, but she is an exception. She is first MBBS Sarpanch, and youngest too. Meet Shanaz Khan, the new Sarpanch in Rajstahan's Bharatpur district. Just 24-year old, she is head of Kaman Panyachat. The ineteresting part is that Shanaz Khan will succeed her grandfather as Sarpanch.  She comes from a family with strong political roots. Her father is village head while mother is a former MLA. Her grandfather has been Sarpanch for 55 years.

 “I am happy that I have got the opportunity to serve my people. My priorities will be the education of girls and sanitation. I want to set an example for girls on how education can help in so many ways,” she was quoted as saying. She hopes that her election will inspire parents to educate and encourage girls.

Shanaz decided to contest election after the Panchayat elections were cancelled in October last year after her grandfather was accused of submitting fake documents for elections. Shanaz at present is studying last year MBBS from  UP- based Tirthankar Mahavir Medical College of  Moradabad. She has done most of her schooling from Gurugram's Shriram School, before doing Class 12 from Delhi Public School, Maruti Kunj.
