Bangalore, Dec 8: Days ahead of its formal launch, the fledgling Karnataka Janata Party headed by former ChiefMinister B S Yeddyurappa has got a glamorous touch with popular Kannada movie heroine Pooja Gandhi joining the party after quitting JD(S).
Pooja, who has to her credit box office hits like “Mungaru Male”, quit JDS to join KJP.
“I am impressed by the leadership of Yeddyurappa and his programmes for the welfare of women and the girl child. Since my personal honour and pride suffered a dent, I decided to quit JDS”, she told reporters after she was welcomed into KJP.
KJP will be launched at a rally at Haveri on December 9.
