Bollywood's item girl Rakhi Sawant is going to contest for Lok Sabha elections in Mumbai North-West constituency. She is contesting as an independent candidate.
"I have been virtually mobbed by people demanding that I should fight the election, so here I am," Rakhi Sawant told the media persons.
"I was offered a BJP ticket from Srirampur in West Bengal. But I am from Mumbai and known Hindi and Marathi. I don't know the local language of West Bengal, so why should I stand from there?" she said.
"Please give me one chance and see what I can do," Rakhi Sawant said. She had recently called a senior BJP party person to express her interest for Narendra Modi as Prime Ministrial candidate.
She will contest with Congress's former union minister and party general secretary Gurudas Kamat and Shiv Sena's Gajanan Kirtikar. Bollywood actor-director Mahesh Manjrekar of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena, Mayank Gandhi of AAP, Kamaal R. Khan of the Samajwadi Partyare the others who will be contesting along with Rakhi Sawant.
Rakhi Sawant left the film industry saying that she will fight against dignity and respect for women in society.
Let's just see if her glamour quotient helps her grab a seat in this LS elections and fight for her constituency.
