To a particular query if she’s nonetheless within the Congress, Ms Sundar mentioned, “I don’t wish to say anything”. With the Congress out of energy since 2014, her political profession graph was showing considerably stunted of late.
If true, it might be clear that the BJP is roping her in for the 2021 meeting elections to interrupt new floor in Tamil Nadu, a state that has been elusive for the get together.
The well-liked star has hopped events prior to now.
