Rajasthan MLA keen to quit politics for teaching.
The 36- year- old first- time MLA wants to leave politics and rejoin teaching. He appeared for the school lecturer's exams conducted by the Rajasthan Public Service Commission on Sunday.
Koli represents Dholpur district's Baseri constituency that is reserved for the Scheduled Caste. He says his brief stint in the state assembly has taught him that " politics is not for an ordinary and common man like me". So, why did he contest the polls in 2008? " None of our earlier MLAs bothered about the constituency once the elections were over. That was when the youth in my constituency asked me to contest," Koli said.
Koli, who has MA, M. Phil and B. Ed degrees to his credit, joined a private coaching institute before becoming a lecturer in a Bharatpur's Madhavanand College. He later became the acting principal of this private college.
Never forgetting the difficulties his impoverished father faced to educate him and his six siblings, Koli took great pleasure in helping students from poor families.
