Khushbu Sundar Joins BJP Hours After Quitting Congress | Know All About The Actor Khushbu

Khushbu Sundar took off for Delhi on Sunday, triggering speculations that she will be joining the saffron party ahead of the crucial polls in Tamil Nadu slated for next year.

New Delhi : Khushbu Sundar news: Actress -turned politician Khushbu Sundar, who is known for her work in the South Indian film industry after initial roles in Bollywood, has joined the Bharatiya Janta Party, hours after she left the Indian National Congress.

How will BJP benefit after Sundar’s joining?

With the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) coming eighth in terms of votes in Tamil Nadu in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, it has a long way to go to establish itself in the state.
