Poonam Mahajan takes on Priya Dutt

BJP candidate Poonam Mahajan filed her nomination from the Mumbai Northwest constituency on Friday, clearing the decks for a showdown with Priya Dutt of the Congress. Poonam led a procession from Kalanagar to the EC’s office in Bandra before filing her papers. “In 2014, there was a Modi wave.

But in 2019, the country will witness a tsunami in his favour, and the Mahamilawat will be completely uprooted. I believe in my kind of politics. In 2019, I want to look at ways to take that forward and do more for my constituency,” she told reporters after filing her nomination, reports NDTV. The BJP leader, who is also the head of the party’s youth wing, had defeated Dutt by a margin of 1.86 lakh votes in the 2014 elections.
