The Congress party is planning to field yesteryear-star actress and former MP Vijayashanthi as its contestant from the Secunderabad Lok Sabha constituency in the upcoming elections.
However sources from the party have revealed that the actress is yet to confirm on this. “She is the star campaigner for Congress and she has to tour to different corners of the state and attend many public meetings to promote the party. She may not have the time to contest in the assembly elections”, a TPCC member stated.
Vijayashanthi had won from Medak in 2009 elections on TRS ticket, but she was expelled from the party by KCR due to some internal differences before 2014 elections. The congress party is known for fielding film actors from this particular constituency. We have to wait and see if Vijayashanthi will add to this list.
