A native of Nagaur, Gori Nagori, through a video release, has announced about her political plans.
“I Gori Nagori is going to contest the assembly elections from Nagaur seat. We will together bring change in Nagaur and turn it into a developed and prosperous Nagaur. I am sure you all will support me,” she appealed.
Nagori said that she is in contact with all the parties. Still she hinted to fight it on her own by saying that whatever success she has got is her own.
“I have struggled throughout on my own. So far I am planning to contest independently,” she said.
Gori Nagori alias Naslima Bano, 24, hogged the limelight when he was selected for 16th edition of the Big Boss reality show. Though she could not win the contest, Gori Nagori won the hearts of fellow contestants and audiences.
“I don't want to do politics in the same old fashion. I want to bring novelty in it and serve people selflessly. We see same old politicians fighting with each other for years. They just don't do any service to people. I want to change it all,” she said.

It's not for the first time that a person from entertainment industry is trying luck in Rajasthan politics. Nathu Singh Gurjar, a popular actor of Rajasthani films, has contested assembly election and became minister in the first tenure of Vasundhara Raje (2003-2008).

Who is MLA of Nagaur?

Habib-ur-Rehman had been MLA twice on BJP ticket before 2018 elections, when BJP denied him the ticket. Rehman contested on Congress ticket but could not win third time.
