No one better than Prime Minister Narendra Modi knows how Social Media can be used for one's image building and growth in politics. Congress has been lagging behind BJP in this area.
Congress IT Wing was founded by Deepinder Hooda (39) and he himself has run it for 5 years. Rahul Gandhi was forced to look for an alternative as the IT Wing failed to yield desired results. Congress Vice President felt someone who have charisma could be a good competitor for NaMo. He didn't take much time to zero in on popular Kannada Actress & former Congress MP for the job. Ramya is being appointed as the new chief of Congress Party's Digital Communications wing.
Controversies aren't new for Ramya. After Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar described Pakistan as hell, The Actress-turned-Politico declared that the neighboring country is as good as India. She dared to say nobody is safe with this government after 25 Jawans were killed by Maoists in Chhattisgarh last month.
