Pooja Gandhi to rejoin JD(S) today

On Saturday, actor Pooja Gandhi will rejoin the party. Pooja had quit the JD(S) in 2012 to join the former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa’s Karnataka Janata Paksha (KJP).

Days ahead of the Assembly polls, the JD(S) has begun to shore up support from the glamour world, with popular Sandalwood actors either joining or agreeing to campaign for the party.

On Saturday, actor Pooja Gandhi will rejoin the party. Pooja had quit the JD(S) in 2012 to join the former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa’s Karnataka Janata Paksha (KJP).

She had, however, quit KJP too, to join Badavara Shramikara Raitara Congress Party (BSRCP) of Sriramulu, which had fielded her from Raichur in 2013. After suffering a setback in those elections,
Pooja had stayed away from politics.

She has now expressed her desire to support the JD(S), said party sources. The actor will not contest the upcoming polls, but will campaign for the party across the state.

While actor Amulya joined the party two days ago, actor-turned-politician Shashi Kumar joined the party on Thursday.

The party has also released a video clip, in which another popular Kannada actor Rachita Ram is seen appealing to the electorate to vote party leader H D Kumaraswamy to
power.

While Kumaraswamy’s son Nikhil Kumaraswamy, also an actor, has already begun campaigning for the party, the party is also desperately hoping for Sandalwood star Sudeep to join the party.

Telugu actor Pawan Kalyan too will campaign for the party, the sources said.
