Haryana Assembly Elections: BJP candidate Sonali Phogat apologises

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate from Adampur constituency, Sonali Phogat has raked up a controversy over her remark during a rally ahead of Haryana Assembly Elections, 2019.

Phogat said a few people did not join her in chanting “Bharat Mata ki Jai,” and she asked them if they have come from Pakistan. She went on to say that such votes were of no value to her. “I’m ashamed of Indians like you,” she said. The incident took place on October 7.

TikTok star Sonali Phogat, who is contesting Haryana Assembly Elections on the BJP ticket said, “I was in Balsamand (Hisar) for a public rally. There were a few college students there. When I started speaking and raised slogans of ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’, those boys didn’t raise slogans with the others. I was angry and asked them if they have come from Pakistan. I apologize if I hurt someone’s sentiments but all I wanted was to tell them that we should say ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ to give respect to our nation.”
