Sawant, who always like to be in the limelight, decided to contest upcoming Lok Sabha election 2014 from Mumbai North-West constituency. She also promised to restore women's safety in the metropolis.
Sawant's rivals would be the Congress' Gurudas Kamat, Shiv Sena's Gajanan Kirtikar, actor-director Mahesh Manjrekar of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena, and Mayank Gandhi of the Aam Aadmi Party.
A political party had offered her a ticket, and she would soon reveal its name
When asked if she would be standing as an independent, she said a political party had offered her a ticket, and she would soon reveal its name.
"I don't know how to play politics. I am here to solve the problems of common man. My aim is to do good work for the society. I am not striving to become a politician. People want me to fight the election and hence I am here," she told PTI.
"I have been doing a lot of social work for the last seven years. My aim is to bring back women's safety. I don't want Mumbai to become like Delhi. I want to arrange self-defence and karate classes for women so that they can protect themselves," she said.
