With assembly elections in five states coming to a culminating after Friday, the next target for all the major political parties in India is the 2019 General elections. Parties have already started forging their plans and strategies for the nation’s biggest elections, and amid this reports suggests that BJP is trying to rope in Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit.
If reports are to be believed, then the saffron party wants Dixit to lead the charge at Pune, come 2019. The Bollywood diva is also likely to contest elections from the same seat. BJP President Amit Shah had personally approached Madhuri Dixit earlier this year, as part of the ‘sampark for samarthan’ drive. During the campaign, Amit Shah made people aware of the work done by the Modi-led government in its 4-year tenure so far.
While the chorus of 2019 General Election is growing which is touted to be the next big thing in the Indian politics, and a final test for the Modi government, a BJP official has told PTI that the party is considering Madhuri Dixit to fight from the Pune seat in next year’s General Elections as BJP believes that it will be better for her.
However, many on Twitter opposed Madhuri Dixit’s possible plans of venturing into politics. They urged the ‘dhak dhak girl’ as she is referred to as by her fans, to stay away from politics.
Really hoping this is not true. She stayed away from bollywood politics- cant imagine her being part of this. pic.twitter.com/ZmC2OMDmVO

Speaking about the party’s decision to consider fresh faces for 2019 elections, it said that not a first time such a tactic is being planned. Earlier also, the party had implemented a similar strategy and fielded new candidates leaving no option for the opposition to criticise the party over past records of the existing candidates.
