Politics in his blood
From the early 1970's when Bangladesh got its independence his family has played an active role in politics till today. Rehan had his first taste of politics during his early High School days when he became a student leader and says that if he hadn't migrated to the US, he would would surely have held political office in Bangladesh.
Being in the US, Rehan's dream is that the next generation of Asians should make their presence felt in mainstream politics, both in state and national levels. "This is the only way Asians can fight for our rights. "America is a melting pot and if you work hard, anything is possible here." That is why he is always working at the grass roots level to encourage and inspire the next generation.
Rehan first joined the Kansas Democratic Party (KDP)
in 2004. Since then, he has been a
long-standing and progressive
supporter of the KDP. Over the
