Tamil actress and Congress leader Khushboo to join BJP, here are the details about the developments

Khushboo Sundar BJP

Actress-turned-politician Khushboo Sundar is likely to join the BJP. She has been in Congress since the year 2014. She recently denied such reports. Meanwhile, she left for Delhi on Sunday, 11th October 2020. She said that she did not want to “comment on it”. When asked if she was still in Congress, she said, “I don’t want to say anything.” Since the Congress was out of power in 2014, the graph of her political career has not been much. It is clear that the BJP is taking them to the Tamil Nadu ground in the 2021 assembly elections.

Famous star Khushboo has been associated with many parties even before this. She joined DMK in 2010 when DMK was in power. At that time, the actress had said, “I feel that I have taken the right decision. I love serving people. I want to work for the good of women.”

However, four years later, when she left DMK, she said, “Hard work was a one-way street for the DMK.” In the same year 2014, she joined Congress after meeting Sonia Gandhi. The actress then said, “I think I am in my house. Congress is the only party that can do good for the people of India and unites the country.” But Khushboo Sundar was not given a ticket for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. While the DMK-Congress alliance had registered a major victory in the state. Nor was she elected to the Rajya Sabha.

Khushboo has been very popular in the state of Tamil Nadu. With the state elections in Tamil Nadu eight months away, the BJP with its limited reach, would like to try Khushboo Sundar’s star power. The party does not yet have any charismatic leader in the state.

Especially when the ruling AIADMK is uneasy about continuing its alliance with the BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and there is speculation that the national party may support superstar Rajinikanth, who may start his own party before the election.

#Kushboo is trending on social media with netizens commenting and trolling about her political journey.
