12-year-old Gurmeet Goyat from Jind, Haryana, has been interviewing political leaders and Haryana’s legislative candidates in the run-up to the assembly elections. Also known as ‘Goldy Goyat’, the little ‘reporter’ has his own YouTube channel where he says he has interviewed over 100 people including Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and JJP leader Dushyant Chautala.
The student of 9th grade says he is fulfilling his late grandfather’s wish who wanted to see him make a name for himself. Goyat plans to pursue journalism for 15 years and contest elections thereafter.
Goyat told ANI,
“It was my grandfather’s dream to see me make a name for myself in the society. He has passed away now. I regret he could not see me doing it. I have done more than 100 interviews till now, I started making videos in January this year.”
“If I could tell you my personal goal, I want to pursue journalism till 2034 and contest elections after that. I will contest as an independent candidate.”
