Mumbai, June 7: BJP president Amit Shah’s scheduled meeting with legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar as part of the party’s “contact for support” campaign was cancelled on Wednesday as she was down with food poisoning.
Expressing regret on missing out the opportunity to meet the BJP leader, the singer tweeted in Hindi that she had spoken to Mr Shah over telephone and expressed her inability to meet him since she had been suffering from food poisoning. She also requested that they can meet during his next visit to Mumbai.
