Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Pankaja Munde said she would have been hailed a hero if she had won the recently held Lok Sabha elections, but some people would not have liked it.

Speaking in Latur district of Maharashtra, the BJP's national secretary said her supporters were worried about her uncertain future. Munde lost the Beed Lok Sabha seat to Bajrang Sonawane from NCP (SP) by a slim margin of 6,553 votes in the recently held general elections. "I bagged 6.7 lakh votes. If I had won, I would have been hailed a hero. But some people woudn't like it," she said.

Munde further said she faced a five-year "vanvaas" (exile) after she lost the 2019 election, and with the latest defeat, her supporters are worried about her future. "I did not fight the elections for myself. I had no idea I would contest till the party declared my candidature," she said. Munde said she will decide her next move after the upcoming Assembly elections.
