Haryanvi singer-dancer Sapna Chaudhary denies reports of joining Congress; says picture with Priyanka Gandhi is old
  • Haryanvi singer-dancer Sapna Chaudhary said she is not joining the Congress party

  • She clarified that she will not be campaigning for any party and that the photo of her and Priyanka Gandhi is an old one

  • BJP MLA Surendra Singh meanwhile said that Rahul Gandhi should marry Chaudhary as she and Sonia Gandhi belong to the same profession and culture

Hours after reports said that Sapna Chaudhary will join the Congress ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, the Haryanvi singer and dancer told ANI that she will not be campaigning for any political party.

Earlier, reports claimed that Chaudhary had joined the Congress on Saturday and was formally inducted into the party at Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar’s residence in Delhi. There were also rumours that she would be fielded from the Mathura constituency, where BJP’s Hema Malini is also a candidate.

Denying all these reports, Chaudhary also clarified that a photograph of Congress general secretary in charge of east Uttar Pradesh Priyanka Gandhi and her is an old one.

Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh BJP MLA Surendra Singh courted controversy with the comment that Congress chief Rahul Gandhi should marry Chaudhary, since both the Haryanvi dancer and his mother belong to the same profession and culture. “Rahul ji ki Mataji bhi Italy mein isi peshe se thi. Jaise aapke pitaji ne Sonia ji ko apna bana liya tha, aap bhi Sapna ko apna banaye (Rahul’s mother practiced the same profession in Italy. Like your father accepted Sonia, you should accept Sapna),” the Ballia MP said.
