After months of speculation, singer and dancer Sapna Choudhary joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday. Choudhary joined the party during a membership drive in the national capital.

She joined the party at a ceremony organised at the Jawaharlal Nehru (JLN) Stadium which was attended by Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari, party’s state in-charge Shyam Jaju and former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, among others.

“There was no need to think twice. I was highly impressed by their work…. BJP is a great party and I have taken its membership,” she said.

During the campaign for 2019 Lok Sabha polls, Choudhary visited Tiwari on several occasions and was also seen in his road shows.

When asked about her plans, she said she would work on the ground to address the problems of the common man. However, Choudhary refused to say anything further stating that she had been directed by the party to “exercise restraint while talking to the media for a while”.

There had been speculation of Choudhary joining the Congress too but she rejected it as rumours.

Talking about the party’s membership drive, Tiwari, meanwhile, said, “I am confident a new record will be set as people from across caste, creed and religions are being enrolled in the party. The membership campaign is the semi-final for Assembly elections, as workers are the backbone of a party.”
