Babita Phogat

The BJP has denied party ticket to two ministers -- Vipul Goel (Faridabad) and Rao Narbir Singh (Badshahpur) and five other MLAs. Thirty-eight sitting MLAs have been given the ticket once again.

Babita Phogat and her father Mahavir Phogat had joined the BJP on August 12. They joined the party in the presence of Union Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju.

Phogat, who had made the country proud by bagging a silver medal in the 21st edition of the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, is believed to a staunch supporter of the BJP’s policies and vision of its leaders, sources added.

Recently, Phogat came out in support of Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, who had stoked controversy with his 'lighter remark' on 'Kashmiri girls,'.
