Haryana’s singer-dancer sensation Sapna Chaudhary yesterday made headlines over not joining Congress party despite after photographs surfaced in which she was seen signing some papers. However, Sapna on Monday added more to the speculation over her political debute after her selfie with Bharatiya Janata Party’s Manoj Tiwari went viral on social media.
According to the sources, Sapna Choudhary is likely to join BJP soon.
It is interesting to note that in the images with Tiwari, Sapna was seen wearing the same pink suit which she wore during the press conference on Sunday setting the rumour mill abuzz about her potential candidature from BJP.
The photograph hint that it was clicked at a meeting that took place between Manoj Tiwari and her before the evening press conference.
Within hours of Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar welcoming her into the party, Sapna Chaudhary claimed she has not joined the Congress and accused it of using her old pictures with Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.
“I have met Priyanka Gandhi many times in the past and the photos circulating on the media are from one of those meetings,” Chaudhary said in the Sunday presser.
Uttar Pradesh, which has 80 Lok Sabha seats, is crucial for both Congress and the BJP. In ensuing Lok Sabha elections, a resurgent Rahul Gandhi seeks to increase his party’s humbling tally of two (Rae Bareli and Amethi) secured in 2014 LS polls. PM Narendra Modi, who seeks a second term, has an arduous task of retaining his party’s stellar performance of 71 seats in the state in 2014.
The elections in UP will be held in seven phases beginning April 11, April 18, April 23, May 6, May 12 and May 19. The counting of the votes will be held on May 23.
