Congress leader Shweta Brambhatt met PM Modi on Tuesday. Needless to say, the grapevine is abuzz since she contested the Gujarat Assembly polls in 2017 on a Congress ticket. She was pitted against BJP’s Suresh Patel and even though she lost the elections, she grabbed headlines for being among the most competent names fielded by the Congress.
Who is Shweta Brambhatt?
Shweta Brahmbhatt is the daughter of Congressman Narendra Brahmbhatt who contested the AMC election in 2000. Brahmbhatt’s father has been her inspiration to enter public life.
