Her leaving is not a loss for Congress: TN Cong Chief KS Alagiri on Khushboo Sundar

Recently, Actress turned politician Khushboo Sundar joined BJP. Hours before she was set to join the Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) in New Delhi, Tamil Nadu Congress Committee chief KS Alagiri found himself at the gathering end of several questions.

He said, "Her leaving is not a loss for Congress. We have no connection with her. Congress workers paid attention to her because she is an actor, they did not see her as a political leader. Even now it seems she has gone to the BJP asking for a position, they never came to her." In her letter of resignation to the Congress party, the actor clearly stated that she was 'pushed and suppressed' in the Tamil Nadu Congress Committee.

“Few elements seated at a 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," she alleged. And in an interview, after she officially joined the BJP, Khushboo refused to name the persons she was referring to but said that at both the state and national level, leaders who were responsible for her decision would feel the 'guilt'.
