The government has given you the right to vote, exercise the same and elect honest people to ensure that corruption is rooted out, said actor-turned-politician and Mandya MP Ramya.

She was answering a query from a student of Vidya Vikas Institute of Engineering & Technology (VVIET) on the outskirts of the city yesterday during her surprise visit to the Institute which triggered an atmosphere of joy at the premises.

A message that Ramya was making a surprise visit to the college received at around 12 noon resulted in a large group of students assembling at the college and Ramya was greeted with loud cheers when she made her appearance while on way to Chamarajanagar on a personal visit.

During her interaction with students, Ramya was countered with appeals for scholarships to which she reacted saying that the problem was prevalent everywhere. She assured a student of Palahalli village in Mandya district of all help when the student complained that she had to walk a few kilometres from her house and change two buses to reach the college.

After the interaction, the Mandya MP reached JSS College for Women in Saraswathipuram where she was given a rousing welcome. While some shook hands with the actress some others were busy clicking her photographs on their mobiles. Later, she called upon young students to come to Mandya during Sonia Gandhi’s visit on Sept. 30 to show the strength of the youth.

Asked what prompted her to enter politics, Ramya quipped “I had large number of fans as an actress but I entered politics with the intention of serving the public.”
