Daughter follows Gawli's path

January 08, 2007

Gangster-turned-MLA Arun Gawli -- called Daddy by supporters -- has decided to field his daughter, Geeta for the forthcoming civic elections in Mumbai.

Gawli believes that Geeta will understand women's problems better. Also people have liked his work in the Chinchpokali area from where he is the MLA, so he feels they will give a chance to his daughter to serve.

Though her campaign is low-key, Geeta is busy meeting people taking small meetings in the Dagdi Chawl area.
