New Delhi: Haryanvi singer and dancer Sapna Choudhary had allegedly met Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari on the same day when she denied joining Congress at a press conference. Within hours of denying joining Congress, she met Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari. Photos of Sapna Choudhary and Manoj Tiwari on social media showed the singer-dancer wearing the same pink dress she wore at the press conference on Sunday evening.
Sapna Choudhary claimed that she has not joined the Congress within hours of Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar welcoming her into the party fold. Further, she accused the party of using her old pictures with Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. Babbar had on Saturday night welcomed Choudhary into the party and posted a picture on Twitter of the dancer with Congress general secretary in-charge of east Uttar Pradesh Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.
“I welcome Sapna Chaudhary ji in the Congress family,” Babbar had tweeted.
Choudhary also said she will not campaign for any political party in the Lok Sabha elections. “I have not joined the Congress party. My pictures with Priyanka Gandhi are old, as I have met her many times in the past. These pictures are old. The biggest issue is that I have not joined any party,” she told reporters.
When confronted by reporters about her pictures filling up forms of Congress membership, Choudhary said if her old interview can be aired, why cannot her pictures be passed off as new.
According to sources, Choudhary was keen to contest from Mathura, where the BJP has fielded Bollywood actor Hema Malini. However, the Congress declared Mahesh Pathak as the party candidate from Mathura in the eighth list of candidates for the Lok Sabha polls released Saturday night.
