CHARKHI DADRI, HARYANA: As votes were counted on Thursday for the Haryana election, champion wrestler and BJP candidate Babita Phogat said she was confident of winning from Dadri assembly constituency.
“We prepare for four years to win medals at the Olympics. Today is the same day when I am waiting for results. People have given me love and support, that is my strength, and what keeps me going. I have faith in public and myself, people will give blessings to their daughter,” Babita Phogat told news agency.
This is the first political outing for Babita Phogat, who, along with her sister Geeta Phogat, inspired the blockbuster “Dangal” on their journey towards becoming champions.
Ms Phogat is pitted against Jannayak Janta Party (JJP) candidate Satpal Sangwan and Congress candidate Nirpender Singh Sangwan.
Dadri is among the areas in Haryana where Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed rallies.
Polling for 90 seats in Haryana took place on October 21.
