Rakhi sawant, who has started her own political party, drove around town with a woman autorickshaw driver for her election campaign. She claims to follow her manifesto of Desh hoga tab Mahan, Naari ka hoga jab Samman.
The party symbol of the Rashtriya Aam Party is the green chilli. Rakhi Sawant will be contesting the Lok Sabha elections from the Mumbai North-West constituency on the plank of restoring women's safety.
"I don't know how to play politics. I am here to solve the problems of common man. My aim is to do good work for the society. I am not striving to become a politician. People want me to fight the election and hence I am here," said Rakhi Sawant.
"I have been doing a lot of social work for the last seven years. My aim is to bring back women's safety. I don't want Mumbai to become like Delhi. I want to arrange self-defense and karate classes for women so that they can protect themselves," she said.
