He started his political journey by entering into the 1929 Legislative Council election campaign, together with S.B. Patel and Vishnu Deo, and started taking up leadership positions in number of organisations. He became the president of Fiji Indian Congress in 1930, a member of the legislative council for 3 terms, and founded the Fijian political party, National Federation Party, in 1968. His actions and ways were often misunderstood by people but his strive was always to admonish justice.
