I cannot mention their names because I don’t have solid evidence. But I heard that few people in the party had bribed a reporter to write fake news about me.”

She also added, “If this is for my post, then I don’t need such a post in the party. I need a simple and peaceful life rather than being involved in dirty inter-party politics. Other than these small issues, I have huge respect for BJP.”
