Khushbu Sundar quits Congress, joins BJP


AHEAD of the Tamil Nadu assembly polls early next year, Congress has suffered a jolt in the southern state following the resignation of its national spokesperson Khushbu Sundar and walking over to the surging BJP. She had migrated from the DMK to the country’s oldest political party, AICC, now headed by Sonia Gandhi. Before joining politics, she came into limelight as an actor, producer and television presenter having starred in more than 200 movies. She is predominantly known for her work in the South Indian film industry. She has received three Tamil Nadu State Film Awards and one Kerala State Film. She quit the New Delhi headquartered  AICC on  Monday and arrived in Delhi after resignation as its primary membership protesting against what she called some leaders “dictating terms” and “suppressing” her. The embarrassed party, meanwhile, announced in Delhi that Sundar was removed from her post of the All India Congress Committee’s spokesperson with “immediate effect”. The popular Tamil actor had tied knot with the AICC in 2014 sent her resignation letter to Congress President  Sonia Gandhi complaining that “people who have no connectivity with the ground reality or public recognition are dictating terms and people like me who wanted to work for the party sincerely are being pushed and suppressed”.
