Rohtak. Babita Phogat, the medal-winning sportsperson from Haryana’s wrestler family, joined the BJP on Monday in national capital Delhi.
Her father and Dhronacharya awardee Mahavir Phogat also switched parties and joined her daughter in the BJP.
Ahead of the 2019 national elections, Mahavir Phogat had joined Jannayak Janata Party founded by Ajay Chautala, son of former CM OP Chautala. But the party ticket that the family had expected didn’t come.
Mahavir Phogat said: “BJP government did a great work by scrapping Article 370 of the Constitution and bifurcating Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories”.
