Sakshi Maharaj backs independent candidate

Lucknow: Even as BJP has not declared tickets for the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls, controversial party MP Sakshi Maharaj today addressed a rally in support of an independent candidate here.

Sakshi was the chief guest in the rally of Rudra Daman Singh alias Bablu, an independent candidate for 2017 from Sarojini Nagar assembly seat of Lucknow.

“I know my brothers in media will put me in the dock. I want such a ‘sipahi’ in BJP. But I want to make him ‘sipahi’ of Modi. Irrespective of the party ticket from here, I know the seat will be won by Bablu Singh,” he said.
