Khushbu quits Congress; joins BJP

Chennai: Actor-turned-politician Khushbu Sundar, who resigned from Congress, joined the BJP on Monday in Delhi.

In her resignation letter to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, she wrote that she felt "pushed and suppressed" by people who had no connect with ground reality.

"Few elements seated at higher level within the party, 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," Khushbu wrote.

"After a long thorough thought process over a period of time, have decided to end my association with the party," she said.

She has been with the Congress close to six years since 2014. Asianet Online
