On Saturday, the BJP leader batting for PM Modi said that it will be dangerous for the country if PM Modi doesn't return to power as he alone has the courage to do what is right for the country.

"There is no other choice. Modiji has to come back. It will be dangerous for the country if someone else wins. That's why we all (BJP members) are working hard to bring him back," Hema Malini told PTI Bhasha in an interview.

Asked whether people will vote for her or Modi in Lord Krishna's city, she said, "People will vote for me in Mathura because Modiji is our leader. I have worked hard to bring him back and every MP of our party has been working hard."

"It's not that people will vote for me only because I am a Bollywood star. I want to be with the people and tell them what Modiji has done, like introducing Ujjawala scheme, Ayushmaan Bharat Yojana, building toilets and much more," she added.

The Mathura MP dodged a direct response when asked if Priyanka Gandhi's entry into politics would benefit the Congress.

Voting will be held in Mathura in the second round of seven-phase Lok Sabha polls on April 18. Results will be announced on May 23.
