About Deepak

Every day I am in our community, advocating for you, protecting what matters to us, and working for families.

I’ve had a long and varied career, I’ve been a a small business owner, chef, and worked for the Department of Defence, but nothing compares to my current job as a representative for my community. Everyday I’m rewarded by the people I meet, and the stories I hear.

As your representative I’ve been an advocate for families and business in Gungahlin. From delivering more infrastructure for Gungahlin, to securing more flexible working from home arrangements, I am working to make our city a better place to live and raise our kids.

I have delivered more community facilities, including working to deliver a large-scale community space at EPIC, a community garden for Throsby, ensuring that we are prepared for natural disasters by protecting Canberra’s water security, advocating for better public transport, including delivering more light rail services, and supporting our nurse-led walk in centre in Gungahlin.

I have been working to ensure we are preparing for our growing city by building and expanding more schools, and duplicating our major roads now.

As your local member I have delivered better infrastructure, recognition for issues our community cares about and have worked to make our community have the lifestyle you deserve.
