Sanjay Dutt Mumbai, Apr 6 (ANI): Congress leader Priya Dutt on Monday failed to file her nomination papers, as she stuck in traffic jam.

Priya is a Congress candidate from Mumbai North-Central parliamentary constituency.

“Due to the traffic jams and crowd outside here, I could not reach on time. The office was closed before I could reach here,” she told reporters here.

When asked about whether her brother Sanjay Dutt would campaign for her, she said: “Sanjay is always with me”.

Priya said that the next date for filing the nomination was not yet been finalised.

Earlier in the day, Priya stopped over at the Siddhivinayak Temple in Mumbai ahead of filing her nomination papers.

She won the Mumbai North-Central parliamentary constituency in 2004.

Priya is contesting against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate Mahesh Jethmalani. (ANI)
