As some in the audience stayed silent, Sonali shouted. “Are you all from Pakistan? Say ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ if you are Indians. I am ashamed of you all. There are Indians like you who can’t say Jai for their nation. The votes of those who can’t say ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ are of no value.”
The new entrant created a stir as soon as her name was announced. Her claim to fame so far was her TikTok videos which she will keep on making for campaigning purpose ahead of the election.
