Actor Payal Ghosh joined Union Minister Ramdas Athawale-led Republican Party of India Monday. News agency ANI reported that Ghosh has been named as the vice president of the party’s women’s wing.
Athawale said the entry of Ghosh and others into the party would strengthen it. “I told her RPI(A) is Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar’s party. It helps all sections of society, be it Dalits, Adivasis, OBCs, villagers, slum dwellers. The RPI will get a good face if you join the party. After I discussed this with her, she was ready to join the party,” Athawale said.
Ghosh is a model-turned-actor who was born on November 13, 1989 in Kolkata. She did Political Science Honours from Scottish Church College, Kolkata.
