Haryanvi singer-dancer Sapna Choudhary has denied joining the Indian National Congress (INC) on Sunday, 24 March, a day after the reports of her joining the party surfaced.
“I have not joined the Congress party. The photograph with Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is old. I am not going to campaign for any political party,” Choudhary said on Sunday, refuting claims of her joining the Congress’ Uttar Pradesh fold.
The denial by Choudhary has been countered by the party’s member and leader Narendra Nath, who has produced her Congress membership form. The documents confirm Choudhary’s entry into Congress with a fee receipt of Rs 5 for joining the party as of 23 March.
‘Welcome Sapna Choudhary Ji to Congress Family’
The Congress party’s Member of Parliament Raj Babbar was among the first to formally announce Choudhary’s entry into the party. Babbar welcomed her into ‘Congress family’ with a tweet on Saturday evening.
According to media reports, Choudhary was formally inducted into the party at Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar's residence, sources said.
It was also speculated that Choudhary could be fielded by Congress from Mathura to take on Bharatiya Janata Party's Hema Malini.
Choudhary later met Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, the Congress general secretary in charge of east Uttar Pradesh.
