Mumbai/IBNS: Actor-politician Urmila Matondkar took a plunge in politics for the second time by joining Maharashtra's ruling party, Shiv Sena.

Matondkar joined the Shiv Sena in presence of party supremo and Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.

Matondkar was recently nominated by the Shiv Sena to the legislative council from the Governor’s quota.

Matondkar had joined the Congress just before the 2019 General Elections.

She had unsuccessfully contested the Lok Sabha polls from Mumbai North on Congress' ticket.

Citing differences with the country's oldest party on a number of issues, the actor-politician had left the Congress.
