Actress-turned-politician Vijayashanti has been saying she won’t be contesting in the upcoming Assembly Polls in Telangana. Her comments raised the doubt whether if Vijayashanti is aiming for Lok Sabha Polls or decided to stay away from electoral polls.
To everyone’s surprise, Vijayashanti changed her stand just before Congress announces the first list of candidates. She aspires to be the candidate of Mahakutami for Dubbaka Assembly Constituency. It’s most likely that her name features in the candidates’ list to be released by Congress in the first week of November.
The Congress party had initially planned to use the services of Vijayashanti as a star campaigner. However, the party felt that she could emerge victorious if fielded in the right constituency. Only winning candidates have been preferred by the Selection Committee operating as per Rahul Gandhi’s instructions.
