Want to contest LS polls to solve people’s woes: Rakhi


Shirdi(Maha): Bollywood starlet Rakhi Sawant has said she wants up to wake up Members of Parliament from their sleep to look into the issues of common man.

“I want to contest the Lok Sabha election to wake up the MPs from their deep sleep. Political leaders have become like rhinoceros by sucking blood of the people,” Rakhi, who is going to contest the Lok Sabha election from Mumbai North-West constituency, told reporters here yesterday after offering prayers at the Saibaba temple.

When asked on which party ticket would she contest the Lok Sabha election, she told the reporters to wait till today for her announcement and added that she would file her nomination papers on Saturday.

“I am happy in Bollywood, but I am contesting elections to solve problems of people as they have trust in me,” the feisty item girl said.

Answering a question, Rakhi said anybody can become the Prime Minister, but what is important is that who takes care of the problems of the people.

Rakhi had been offered a BJP ticket from Srirampur in West Bengal, but she said she declined it as she didn’t know the local language.
