Chaudhary has expressed his commitment to standardize roads in the aforementioned election constituency, uplift community schools in the region, ensure quality health services , establish and promote the constituency as Banana Special Zone, establish industrial gram, ensure timely disbursement of sugarcane to farmers, commercialize agriculture, set up dry port to promote trade in the region, work on tourism and hydropower prospects in entire Nawalparasi.
