Actress turned politician and Telugu Mahila president Roja has kicked up yet another controversy. However, the target this time was not Praja Rajyam Party (PRP) leaders, but Congress activists who had protested against her in Chittoor district on Friday.
After she was prevented from entering a village, Roja called upon Telugu Desam Party (TDP) cadre to give a befitting reply for those who have protested against her with chappals (footwear). This statement made Congress MLC Ganga Bhavani fume at the Telugu Mahila president.
Speaking to reporters at Chief Minister’s camp office on Saturday, Ganga Bhavani has said Roja was mentally unsound and thus speaking like a mad woman. “It has become a daily routine for Roja to scold others and get scolded herself by others. People will thrash her with chappals if she continues to speak like this,” Ganga Bhavani said.
She said TDP leaders were speaking out of frustration because it has become clear that they are not going to win the elections. She advised Roja to keep her tongue under control.
