Haryanvi singer-dancer Sapna Chaudhary once again met Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari on Sunday night, according to sources. A photo of the purported meeting has now surfaced.

According to sources, Sapna is likely to campaign for the BJP. However, there is no information about her joining the party as of now.

The reported meeting in the second in the last few days amid reports of her joining the BJP, ahead of the Lok Sabha elections. Earlier, the two had reportedly met on March 24, after which Chaudhary had addressed media denying her joining the Congress.

In the picture which went viral then, Sapna could be seen in the same suit she wore for the press meet, in which she told the reporters, "Nahi maine Congress nahi join ki…bilkul nahi ki...(No, I haven't joined Congress...not at all)."

On her meeting with Manoj Tiwari, Sapna had said that their friendship goes back to a long time. However, when asked if this meant she was joining the BJP, she said nothing is on the agenda right now.

On March 23, Sapna had reportedly joined the Congress. According to news agency PTI, she was formally inducted into the party at Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Raj Babbar's residence. Sapna later met Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, the Congress general secretary in charge of east Uttar Pradesh.

Speculations were rife that she could be fielded from Mathura to take on Bharatiya Janata Party's Hema Malini.

However, the next day, she denied joining the Congress and said that her picture with Priyanka, which was doing rounds on social media, was an old one.

Her denial came as a rude shock to the UP Congress leaders, who had announced her entry in the party and made the news public. Raj Babbar, had tweeted from his official handle, "Sapnaji ka Congress parivaar mein swagat hai (We welcome Sapna ji to the Congress family).

According to reports, Sapna wanted to contest from Mathura but the Congress had finalised someone else, which became the reason for the former to step back.
