BJP gives MLA ticket to a TikTok star in Haryana, hoping she will get votes of Youths

TikTok has been one heck of an addictive app of late across the world. It has been learnt that out of half a billion users, at least 119 million are known to be Indian and those are all kids and teenagers (majority wise)

TikTok is an app that allows you to share short clips and the idea is to use dance or lip sync to ‘background music or movie dialogues’ to create the most viral clip. But little we know that a TikTok star’s life would take a massive U-turn soon after BJP fielded Sonali Phogat.

From Adampur, a constituency which is represented by Kuldeep Bishnoi, the BJP has fielded a TikTok star Sonali. Interestingly, she has also worked in the party organization.

For the unversed, Sonali Phogat became a ‘sensation’ on social media video app TikTok. She is competing against Kuldeep Bishnoi of the Congress from the crucial Adampur Assembly seat in Haryana. It is worth mentioning that Bishnoi is a sitting MLA and a son of former Haryana CM Bhajan Lal.

Sonali has over 1.23 lakh followers on her official TikTok handle. She is also a good actor and has made some appearances on TV serials too. Sonali, who accused Bishnoi of infamous corrupt activities, has also worked in Hisar with the Haryana Ka la Parishad. She has also appeared in some Haryanvi songs.

In 2014 Assembly elections, Kuldeep Bishnoi- 47% votes followed by the INLD candidate. Kuldeep Bishnoi had contested as a candidate of Haryana Janhit Congress, a party he had then merged with Congress in 2016.
