“Thank you everyone for your messages! Yes I would like to tell this that I have too isolated myself, till I get my Covid tests done,” the actor had informed in a tweet earlier this week. Payal made headlines in September when she leveled sexual harassment charges against filmmaker Anurag Kashyap. She alleged that Kashyap raped her at a place on Yari Road in Versova in 2013.
Athawale said the entry of Payal into the party would strengthen it. “I told her RPI(A) is Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar’s party. It helps all sections of society, be it Dalits, Adivasis, OBCs, villagers, slum dwellers. The RPI will get a good face if you join the party. After I discussed this with her, she was ready to join the party,” Athawale said, according to PTI.
