Urmila Matondkar joining Shiv Sena: party leader

Indian actor-turned-politician Urmila Matondkar is going to join right-wing political party Shiv Sena, says a leader of the party.

Indian media reported the leader as saying that Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray will induct Matondkar.

Nearly a year ago, she was a member of the Congress party, but resigned later.

She had contested the 2019 Lok Sabha elections as a Congress candidate.
