Actor-turned politician Khushboo, who joined the Congress on Wednesday, said the grand old party is the only political group that can keep India united.
"It is a great honour to join the Congress. I feel at home with this party. It is the only party that can do good for the people of India. It is the only party that can give you secularism and keep India united," Khushboo told the media after joining the party at the All India Congress Committee (AICC) Headquarters here.
Speaking on her role in the party, Khushboo stated that her focus would be to work for the good of the country.
"My focus is [working] for the good of the country. Tamil Nadu is also part of the country so my focus is not on that state alone. I will just have to wait for what role I will be playing in the party and only after that I will be able to give a more concrete answer," she said.
On being asked why she was joining the Congress and not the BJP, the two-time Tamil Nadu State Film Award winner stated that she felt 'at home' with the Congress.
"Why must people always go with a wave? When I am joining Congress, it is because this is where I want to be," she said.
The 'Kolangal' star, who had quit the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) in June this year, met Congress president Sonia Gandhi at her official 10, Janpath residence earlier this evening.
