New Delhi: Bollywood actor-turned-politician Urmila Matondkar, who contested the 2019 Lok Sabha elections on a Congress ticket and resigned five months later, is all set to join the Shiv Sena on Monday.

The development comes a year after Urmila resigned from the primary membership of the Congress, citing petty politics as the reason.

In her statement, the actress said, “My political and social sensibilities refuse to allow vested interests in the party to use me as a means to fight petty in-house politics instead of working on a bigger goal in Mumbai Congress.”

As per reports, the Uddhav Thackeray-led party has picked her Urmila for nomination to the State Legislative Council with Maharashtra’s ruling alliance of Maha Vikas Aghadi and is set to recommend the 46-year-old actor’s name along with 11 others to the Governor.

Urmila also said she will continue to work for people with honesty and dignity as she thanked all those who helped and supported her. On November 30, she will be joining the Shiv Sena.
