This comes in the backdrop of media reports that claimed that the former Congress’ social media head had duped the party of Rs eight crore when she quit the national party
Indian film actress and former Lok Sabha MP from Karnataka Divya Spandana aka Ramya on Thursday asked Congress leader KC Venugopal to clear her name in the media regarding reports which said that she had duped the Congress of Rs eight crore when she quit the national party.
She further stated that she didn’t run away and resigned from the party for personal reasons and claimed that the story was planted to discredit her credibility.
Humble request to @kcvenugopalmp to please clarify with the media about this whenever you’re in Karnataka next. The least you can do for me Venugopal ji, so I don’t have to live with this abuse and trolling for the rest of my life.
