New Delhi: The face of Congress campaign ‘Ladki Hoon, Lad Sakti Hoon’, Priyanka Maurya, is considering joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) after she was denied a ticket to contest in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections.
Asked whether she would join the BJP, Maurya indicated that she may join BJP, the ruling party in the state.
“Probably, yes. I have worked a lot in the field but ticket distribution was pre-planned. I was not given a ticket, but I was a deserving candidate,” ANI reported Maurya as saying.
“Ladki Hoon, Lad Sakti Hoon is the slogan but Congress didn’t give me a chance to fight,” she added.
Maurya is the vice president of Mahila Congress in Uttar Pradesh. The Congress was organizing ‘marathons’ across the state as part of its ‘Ladki Hoon, Lad Sakti Hoon’ campaign, but these have been postponed in view of the rise in Covid-19 cases.
