Urmila Matondkar joins Shiv Sena
Actor-turned-politician Urmila Matondkar has joined Shiv Sena in the presence of party chief and Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray on December 01. Last year, Matondkar fought Lok Sabha elections from North Mumbai representing the Congress party but lost to BJP’s Gopal Shetty.
Urmila had earlier resigned from the Congress party, a key ally of the Shiv Sena-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra. The actor turned politician Matondkar has a good social connection within Maharashtra and will be an additional strength for the Shiv Sena to put out its messages on a national level.
