Talking to PTI, Sampat Pal said, "I have not yet said yes for my participation in Bigg Boss. I will be able to take any decision in this regard after October 4." The 65-year-old social activist added, "The organisers of Bigg Boss have approached me and I have told them that I am unable to accept the offer now."
Sampat Pal admitted that she did not know much about the reality show and she would decide her future course of action after attending the Women's Conference on October 4. She said, "I am in a dilemma over my participation in the reality show as I have to attend a World Women Conference in Brazil on October 28 and I give priority to issues related to women's rights."
Replying to a question, she said that she might join 'Bigg Boss' after attending the conference but it would not be at the cost of her priorities. Pal, who runs 'Gulabi Gang' a group of women known for taking up the cause of women facing violence, domestic or social, in Bundelkhand region - had contested assembly polls on Congress ticket from Manikpur in Chitrakoot district.
