I thank her for joining the party and I welcome her, said Union minister Ramdas Athawale

Actor Payal Ghosh, who accused filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of raping her, joined the Republican Party of India (Athawale) on Monday.

She joined the party in the presence of party chief and Union minister Ramdas Athawale.

The actor was appointed vice president of the women's wing of the party.

Athawale said the entry of the actor and others into the party would strengthen it.

He also claimed Kashyap would be arrested soon. The filmmaker has continuously denied the allegations levelled by the actor.

"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.

The actor said she joined RPI(A) to do something for the country and thanked Athawale for supporting her in her fight against Kashyap.
