The face of the Congress party’s “ladki hoon, lad sakti hoon” campaign, Priyanka Maurya is set to join the BJP. Although the party has yet to confirm her entry, Priyanka Maurya visited the party office on Wednesday, January 19, 2022. Priyanka Maurya previously accused Congress Secretary General Priyanka Gandhi’s associate Sandip Singh of demanding bribes for giving a ticket from Sarojini Nagar assembly constituency in Uttar. Pradesh.
Priyanka Maurya, Deputy Speaker of the Mahila Congress in Uttar Pradesh, said: “A slogan was thrown around saying ladki hoon, lad sakti hoon. But it remained only a slogan and did not come true because a girl was denied the chance to fight in the elections. I had worked hard in my assembly constituency. I put my heart and soul into thinking that I was going to help people. But the Congress party had pre-decided the candidate and I turned out to be just another pawn for them. The ‘Shakti Vidhan’ party manifesto which features my picture on the front is where the party used me to attract women’s votes, the OBCs. »

She added, “They used me to attract voters from castes like Maurya, Kushwaha, Shakya and Saini. When it came to giving me what was legit, they kicked me out. I condemn those who just use faces like me just to get OBC votes. Because I had put all my energy when I was working in my constituency. And yet, I didn’t get the chance, despite being named to the top in every place.
When asked if she had any talks with anyone from the BJP office, she replied, “Yes, I am in talks with the people here and I am only here to talk with them further.” Priyanka Maurya was preparing for the election of Sarojini Nagar seat in Lucknow. Congress sent Rudra Daman Singh from this seat. After being refused the ticket, Priyanka Maurya had alleged that the Congress party was an anti-women party. She had also called the “ladki hoon, lad sakti hoon” campaign a deception.
