Sonali Phogat, a 41-year-old actor and leader of the Haryana BJP, passed away after a heart attack on Monday night in Goa, according to her relatives.
She is survived by her daughter, according to Vatan Dhaka, a relative of Phogat, who claimed to have learned of her passing on Tuesday morning.
While her family hurried from Fatehabad in Haryana to Goa to retrieve her body, Sudhir Sangwan, Phogat’s personal assistant, was unable to be reached since his phone was off. Her spouse, Sanjay Phogat, was discovered dead in 2016 in an unsolved incident.
Sonali Phogat ran for the Haryana legislature in 2019 from Adampur but lost to Kuldeep Bishnoi of the Congress, who has subsequently joined the BJP. Following their meeting last week, the two agreed to move forward with Adampur’s development.
Phogat asserted that he was a candidate for the BJP’s nomination to run in the by-election for the Adampur seat, which Bishnoi abandoned after defecting from the Congress.
