Chennai: A senior Congress leader has hit out at actress-politician Khushbu Sundar for supporting actor Vishal's decision to contest in RK Nagar by-election. Congratulating Vishal, Khushbu, the national spokesperson of Congress, tweeted: "Wishing you all the very best my dear buddy.. knowing you, you will bring the change.. good luck dear..let your good deeds n service for the less fortunate people speak for you."
Expressing strong reservations over the above statement, former deputy mayor of Chennai and Congress South Chennai president Karate R Thiyagarajan said, "The Congress has decided to support DMK candidate Marudhu Ganesh in RK Nagar by-poll. At this situation, Khushbu supporting Vishal is strongly condemnable."

He said that the actress has been continously involved in anti-party activities and she recently mentioned EVKS Elangovan as the permanent president of Tamil Nadu Congress Committee.
"Is Thirunavukkarasar, who was appointed as TNCC chief by Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, a part-time president of the party?" he asked.
Alleging that Khushbu was trying to create confusion, he urged the party high command to take strict disciplinary action against her. He also said no body can stop the victory of Marudhu Ganesh in RK Nagar.
