'Bhojpuri Queen' from Assam joins BJP
Bhojpuri singer Kalpana Patowary, who hails from Assam, has joined the BJP in the presence of its president Amit Shah and Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi in Bihar's Patna.
"I am impressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision and leadership. I'll use politics as a tool, medium and power to serve more and reach out. BJP for me is an ideology," Patowary said.
Not contesting elections but will help in every way: Patowary
"I have not joined BJP for contesting elections as of now, but I am ready to help the party in every possible way through my art," said the multi-lingual singer who has also lent her voice to many Bollywood films.
Populary known as 'Bhojpuri Queen', Patowary said politics will not interfere in her musical carrier as she wants to archive the folk musical heritage.
