Lucknow: Sanghamitra Maurya, the daughter of UP cabinet minister Swami Prasad Maurya, on Wednesday said she would become a goon if anyone tries to bully the people of Badaun, the parliamentary constituency she is contesting from on a BJP ticket.
“Agar aapke beech koi gundagardi karane aata hai toh un gundon se bhi badi gundi Sanghamitra ban jaayegi agar kisi ne yahan par aapke samman, swabhimaan ke saath khilwad karne ki koshish ki (If anyone tries to play with your dignity, self-respect and attempts to bully you, Sanghmitra will turn into a bigger goon than those people),” she said at a public gathering here.
Maurya is up against SP chief Akhilesh Yadav’s cousin Dharmendra Yadav, who is also the sitting MP from Badaun.
