Chennai: Tamil actor Kushboo Sundar on Monday resigned from the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), the party she had joined in May 2010.

“From the day I joined the party, I have been giving my 100% effort in party work, which everybody knows. However, all my efforts have been only one-sided; therefore, with a heavy heart, I resign from the party,” Kushboo said in a press release.

“Will always have my highest regard for Kalaignar all through my life… He is just not a leader, but a father I never had—nothing can take that away,” she tweeted about M. Karunanidhi, party chief of DMK.

Kushboo’s exit follows the Dravidian party’s rout in the recent Lok Sabha election by the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, which won 37 out of 39 seats in Tamil Nadu.

“I am not jumping into any other party…so stop assumptions and hold back your horses, friends. Need some time alone with family,” she tweeted.
