"My father Sunil Dutt's goodwill, popularity and blessings are enough for getting re-elected from my parliamentary constituency in Mumbai in the ensuing Lok Sabha poll," late Dutt's daughter and Congress MP Priya Dutt has said.

Talking to PTI after addressing a convention of Congress party women workers and interacting with the students here on Friday, Dutt said elections are won on principles and ideology of the political party and voters of her parliamentary constituency will continue to support her by electing her again in the upcoming Lok Sabha election.


When asked whether her chances will be affected after her elder brother actor-turned politician Sanjay Dutt deciding to contest Lok Sabha poll from Lucknow parliamentary constituency on Samajwadi Party ticket, she said that it is the ideology, policies and programmes of the party which plays an important role in the victory of a candidate.


"Sanjay is my brother and he will contest the election from Lucknow on his own popularity as he is very popular amongst the people," she said. Dutt said she is in favour of allotment of 30 per cent Congress party tickets to women candidates and strongly supported the women reservation bill which could not be approved by the Parliament.
