New Delhi. Wrestler and Commonwealth Games champion Babita Phogat and her father Mahavir Phogat are likely to join BJP today.
Ahead of the Haryana assembly elections, the Phogats joining BJP will give the party a further thrust. Earlier, Babita Phogat came out in support of Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar after he courted a controversy with his remarks on Kashmiri girl, saying there was "nothing offensive" in his statement.
"Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar's statement is not offensive to our sisters and daughters. I urge media to not misinterpret his statement," the Arjuna awardee had said while replying to a journalist on Twitter.
