Congress has fielded actor-model Archana Gautam from Hastinapur constituency for the upcoming Uttar Pradesh elections. Speaking about her bikini pictures, the model asked people not to merge her media profession with her career as a politician. Here’s what we know about the UP-Congress candidate.

Actor and model Archana Gautam has been given a ticket by UP Congress from Hastinapur constituency for the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections starting from February 10. The party had rolled out its first list of candidates from various constituencies on Thursday, January 13. It consisted a total of 125 candidates out of which 50 are women.

The model gained a ticket within two months of joining the party. In a conversation with ANI, she said that she aims at development and promotion of tourism in Hastinapur if she gets elected.

The Hindu Mahasabha has condemned this candidature claiming that it has hurt the sentiments of many Hindus and Jains as Hastinapur holds religious importance to them as a pilgrimage centre. Gautam reverted on such backlash considering it as mere trolling of her profession. “I consider it nothing more than just trolling. I was born in Hastinapur, this is my birthplace. I know the region in and out and that is why Priyanka (Gandhi) didi found me suitable. Those who are circulating my bikini-clad pictures have exposed their own mindset. I am proud of what I do,” she said to an interviewer with Times of India.
