Known for her impassioned speeches in Parliament, Poonam is a strong advocate for women's rights and animal welfare, carving her own path in politics. Hailing from the esteemed political lineage of her late father, Pramod Mahajan, she has represented the prestigious constituency of North Central Mumbai since 2014.

Reflecting on her father's influential role in the Ram Janmabhoomi movement, Poonam shares insights into his advice to LK Advani, encouraging a Rath Yatra from Somnath Temple to Ayodhya in 1990.
