Last Updated 07 May 2019, 16:46 IST

Actor Swara Bhaskar campaigned for East Delhi candidate Atishi and hailed the Aam Aadmi Party leader as a politician who banks on her work for the people and not fame.

Bhaskar and Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani held a bike rally for Atishi in Shastri Park area of east Delhi.

"Atishi has proved herself by contributing in the education sector. She is a politician who does politics on the basis of her work and not name," the actor said.

Atishi is pitted against Bharatiya Janata Party candidate Gautam Gambhir and the Congress' Arvinder Singh Lovely.

Bhaskar said she is not a member of any party, but is campaigning for candidates who focus on development issues and on democratic values

The actor had also campaigned for CPI(M) candidate Amra Ram in Sikar, Rajasthan, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh in Bhopal and CPI candidate Kanhaiya Kumar in Begusarai, Bihar.

In the past two days, actor-turned-politician Prakash Raj and Mevani had joined the AAP's campaign.

Delhi goes to polls next Monday.
