Reena Thakur wiki
The young politician whose career ended because of a video.
Reena Thakur was a former member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in India. Her contentious video with BJP leader Upen Pandit quickly went viral, catapulting her into the spotlight and also led to the end of her political career.
Let us learn more about young politician whose career ended as a result of a video.
Early life, family and education
Reena Thakur hails from the town of Himachal Pradesh’s Solan. Her father then used work for a bank but is now retired, and she comes from a Rajput household. Her parents names are unknown as of now, although it is known that she has a brother and a sister, one of whom is named Babita Verma.
Reena received her education from the Govt. Senior Secondary School, Darlaghat, in Solan, Himachal Pradesh. She earned her bachelor’s degree at Himachal Pradesh University in Shimla.
Reena later got married and has a boy child.
Reena Thakur Political Career
Reena Thakur decided to join the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) women’s wing, the Himachal BJP Mahila Morcha, in 2007. She was formerly reported to be employed as a schoolteacher in a Shimla private school. She was still going strong in politics, and important politicians like Prem Kumar Dhumal & Jai Ram Thakur complimented her work.
She had to give up her political career after almost working for 12 years in Bharatiya Janata Party.
The controversial video and its after effects
Reena’s career, however, ended after a video of Reena Thakur with Upen Pandit leaked online in the year 2019 and a dispute erupted. This video was around 12 minutes long and contained some unpleasant content, for which they were both strongly chastised. This film is believed to have been shot in a government guest house bathroom, and it appears that they both shot the video while engaging in enjoyable activities.
Later, a telephone call which was between Reena and Upen Pandit’s wife was leaked online, revealing that Upen’s wife was well aware of her husband’s romance and extra martial affair with Reena even before the video was released online. Reena had been warned by Upen’s wife to stay away from her husband, and she had also spoken with Reena’s husband and brother about it. Reena and Upen, on the other hand, were unaffected and continued meeting as usual.
After this audio recording came out publicly, Reena and Upen were hammered even harder. Upen Pandit’s wife was rumoured to be considering divorcing him as a result of the incident.
Where is she now?
Reena is not on any social media platforms and is living low after that public incident and the huge backlash form both public and her party members. No other details such as about her present work and where she lives is unknown.
Her life showed that even after working for more than a decade in politics, if one was caught red handed in a controversy, it would mean the end of one’s career.
