Kangana Ranaut is welcome to join BJP but...: JP Nadda after she hints at political foray

BJP chief JP Nadda said everyone is welcome to the party but the decision to allocate seats before elections is taken after a consultation process.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president JP Nadda was asked about actor Kangana Ranaut hinting at joining politics and her willingness to fight the Lok Sabha 2024 elections from Himachal Pradesh on a BJP ticket at Panchayat Aaj Tak Himachal Pradesh. JP Nadda responded by saying the Bollywood actor is welcome to join the party but, the decision on contesting polls is taken after a consultation process.

Kangana Ranaut on Saturday, October 29 hinted at her foray into politics, saying she is open to fight the elections from Mandi in Himachal Pradesh if the public wants it and if the BJP gives her a ticket.

"Kangana Ranaut is welcome to join the party. There is ample space for anyone who wants to work with the party. But as far as contesting the polls are concerned, it is not my decision alone. There is a consultation process right from the grassroots level to the election committee to the parliamentary board," JP Nadda said.

"Everyone is welcome to join the BJP. But in what capacity, the party decides. We don't take anyone based on conditions. We tell everyone, you have to come unconditionally and only then is the party going to decide," he added.
