New Delhi, September 1: As the Haryana assembly elections are scheduled to take place later this year, it has been reported that the Zee Media Corporation Limited Chairman Dr Subhash Chandra may take another career plunge to enter into politics.

63-year-old Dr Chandra, a native of Hisar district, Haryana may contest the forthcoming assembly polls, a Zee News report said on Monday.

The report further said that Dr Chandra is seeking feedback on what are the most important issues of the Hisar constituency.

Then, the man who started with humble beginnings with rice trading in Hisar, would release a separate manifesto to address the needs of the locals.

In April this year, Dr Subhash Chandra had appealed to the people of Haryana to support and vote for the Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC)-BJP alliance in the state.

During the Lok Sabha elections, HJC had entered into an alliance with BJP, but last week, both the parties broke their 3-year-old alliance, ahead of the Haryana assembly elections.

The BJP is now contesting the Haryana polls independently and is eyeing to win more than 60 of the total 90 seats on its own.

This year, during the Lok Sabha elections, many corporate honchos tried their luck into politics, like the UIDAI chairman Nandan Nilekani and other big names, but none of them could garner votes despite their bright and successful corporate career.

Lets see, whether politics will suit Dr Subhash Chandra or not, who is already a big name in the media industry.

In 2012, Dr Chandra had threatened to file a defamation case against the former Congress MP from Kurukshetra, Naveen Jindal in connection with Rs 100-crore extortion case against his TV channel's top editors Sudhir Chaudhary and Samir Ahluwalia.
