New Delhi: Sharmishta Mukherjee, daughter of Pranab Mukherjee, will contest the upcoming Delhi Assembly elections from Greater Kailash constituency on Congress ticket.

Sharmistha joined INC in 2014 and the party hopes to win this seat for the first time after its creation in 2008.

A renowned Kathak dancer, Sharmistha Mukherjee says that she is aware of the fact that people have high hopes from her as she is the daughter of President of India.

GK holds a special place in Sharmistha's life, because it's more of a home to her than mere a constituency. She has been living there since 1986.

Sharmistha studied history at Stephen's and did her post-graduation in sociology from JNU.
