Speaking after joining the BJP Khera said, "The manner in which I was misbehaved with on the land of Kaushalya Mata for being a devotee of Ram, for having darshan of Ram Lalla, I would not have been able to reach here if I had not got the protection of the BJP government and the Modi government'.
"Today's Congress is not Mahatma Gandhi's Congress, it is anti-Ram, anti-Hindu Congress", she added.
Making an initial remark after joining BJP, Shekhar said, 'Till yesterday I don't know that I would be sitting here today because many things in life happen knowingly or unknowingly. I have come here with a very positive thinking and I would like to thank God that he ordered me to come here.'
