On Tuesday, Apr 19, Ramya, from her Twitter account, officially declared, "Became a member of Youth Congress today. Do you want to as well?" The actress informed, "Right now I don't have any intention to enter active politics. I have joined the Youth Congress because it is the party of youth."
After announcing her decision to join the Congress, the actress faced criticism over joining a "corrupt party". However, dismissing all the criticism, Ramya remembered Mahatma Gandhi.
Quoting Bapu, the actress tweeted, "Be the change you want to see. If one thinks there is corruption, he has to be the part of the system to change it."
Rahul Gandhi will visit Bangalore on Apr 21, and is expected to address members of the party. Ramya's recent decision to join the Youth Congress is believed as a calculative move by the Sandalwood heroine.
