Wrestler Babita Phogat and father Mahavir Singh Phogat take plunge into politics, join BJP

Phogat sisters along with their father have long admired PM Modi for his bold decision-making ability and have even supported the government’s decision to abrogate Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir.

The famous wrestler Babita Phogat along with her father Mahavir Phogat have officially entered the political fray by joining the BJP today. The move comes at a time when Haryana state elections are just months away.

Wrestler Babita Phogat and her father Mahavir Singh Phogat joined the saffron party in presence of the Union Minister Kiren Rijiju.

A three time Commonwealth gold and silver medalist, Babita’s entry into BJP will boost the party’s prospects in the state elections in Haryana, which are due later this year. The Amir Khan starrer blockbuster ‘Dangal’ movie was based on the life of Mahavir Singh Phogat and his daughters’ achievements in the field of wrestling.

I urge the media not to misinterpret his statement,” said Ms Phogat, according to ANI.
