The social media chief of the Congress party, Ramya was very active on social media, especially on Twitter until November 8. But after a series of tweets against demonetisation on that day, there is not even a single tweet from the actress-turned-politician to date.
Ramya's name is Divya Spandana as seen on her Twitter handle as she adapted the name Ramya as her screen name when she was an actress. The rumours of Ramya contesting the Karnataka Assembly elections are getting stronger, and her absence from commenting on any issue on either Twitter or any other social media just makes the allegations look true.
Ramya was appointed as the social media chief of Congress party in May this year.
However, it was said that Ramya would contest from Mandya as the party is interested in fielding her instead of actor-turned-politician Ambareesh. But this rumour resulted in another rumour making rounds that long-time leader in Congress, Ambareesh is likely to join Mysuru.
This created a ripple effect and now the current rumours are that Ambareesh is likely to get a ticket to contest from Mandya and Ramya will be made to contest from Melukote.
It can be remembered that in the last elections Ramya had lost against JD(S) candidate Puttaraju. This year if Ramya agrees to contest from Melukote, she can take revenge as Puttaswamy will be contesting from the same constituency.
Thus Congress is playing a safe game by giving tickets to both Ambareesh and Ramya. However, it also can be noted that Ambareesh had attended just four days of sessions whereas he was recently found dancing with actress Malashri for a movie promotion when the session was on in Belagavi.
Even people are said to be not happy with their star leader Ambareesh and his absence from the constituency and in representing pressing issues like Cauvery water or Madya farmers protest.
Will Congress let Ambareesh go to JD(S) or bring Ramya, who was aspirant of Lok Sabha ticket, to state politics, no one knows yet.
But Ramya's silence on Twitter is a sign that she is busy with something else and currently, in the political front, preparations for the Assembly elections in May next year is the only pressing matter before any politician attached to Karnataka.
