Reason for running

submitted by the candidate or their team
Dr. Rajakumar's interest in politics stems from his close connections with the community. He attributes his interest to become an MP as a passion to do public service which he obtained through his long years of medical practice in rural and remote areas of Saskatchewan.

Society is facing issues today related to emerging infectious and non-communicable diseases, water, food security/safety and protection of environment, that transcend national boundaries. I foresee an opportunity to create a unique delivery system with innovation and knowledge for policy change and on the ground optimization of delivery and outcome. I believe in employing leading-edge communication technology and the provincial infrastructure to develop a template for the 21st Century, state-of-the-art, health care delivery for rural and remote areas. The underlying concept for this program is: “Predict, Prevent, and Personalize.” On global scale, I am passionately concerned about the social determinants of health, poverty reduction and environmental sustainability. I own and founded a farm in the Saskatoon to find new ways to enhance food security and provide opportunities for innovation in sustainable energy.
