Jaya Prada to join BJP, may take on Kejriwaltext_fields
New Delhi: Actor-turned-politician Jaya Prada is likely to join the BJP and may be fielded against AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal in the Delhi assembly election, BJP sources said Thursday.
According to a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader, the party is banking on the actor's glamour quotient to win the New Delhi seat won by Kejriwal in 2013 after defeating three-time chief minister Sheila Dikshit.
Jaya Prada fought the 2014 Lok Sabha election as a Rashtriya Lok Dal candidate from Bijnor but lost.
Meanwhile, former IPS officer Kiran Bedi, former AAP legislator Vinod Kumar Binny and former AAP leader Shazia Ilmi too are likely to join the BJP soon, the sources said.
