I have written to the party president that I give up my seat now and Mayank Joshi deserves it. I have worked in this seat for 12 years and he has worked here so that he can get a ticket.
She said, “I have clearly told the party that if my son gets a ticket, I will give up the seat and I am not leaving the party and will continue to work as a BJP worker.”
