Changing Tracks: Is PT Usha Joining BJP?
New Delhi: After Metro man E Sreedharan, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is eyeing Olympian and former athlete, PT Usha, to make inroads into Kerala ahead of the elections in Kerala.
She supported the BJP and Centre strongly on the farm laws. Her tweets also show a definite leaning and support for the BJP.
PT Usha was one among many who tweeted condemning the remarks by climate change activist Greta Thunberg and singer Rihanna. One of her tweets read, “We are proud of our own culture and heritage and are the true model of Democracy. Don’t interfere in our internal matters, we know how to resolve our own issues because we are one and only nation in the world upholding UNITY IN diversity .#india against propaganda. “
As part of ‘mission south,’ the BJP wants to make its presence felt in God’s own country, which has been largely represented by the Left and Congress in Parliament. Roping in icons from the state could boost its prospects, News18.com reported.
The BJP is also hoping to rope in some popular film stars and eminent people from the cultural and social field in a bid to woo the youth of the state, the report added.
