Mumbai: Actor Isha Koppikar on Sunday joined the BJP in the presence of Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari. She has been given the charge of Women Transport Wing as its working president. Koppikar’s appointment comes a day after a BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya took a jibe at Congress saying, “they want to contest the coming elections by banking on chocolatey faces.”
Isha began her film career in 1998 with a Tamil movie and entered the Bollywood bandwagon with film ‘Fiza’ in 2000. On January 2, Bollywood actor Moushumi Chatterjee too had joined the BJP. Â Meanwhile, as the 2019 general elections are inching closer, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday appointed senior party leader Mallikarjun Kharge as Chairman of Maharashtra Co-ordination Committee.
