Golden girl Ramya has joined the Karnataka Pradesh Youth Congress (KPYC) earlier this year and she also met the general secretary of the Congress party, Rahul Gandhi at the Bangalore Palace. The latest buzz is that the Kannada actress is eyeing the post of president of the KPYC.
According to reports, the last date for filing the nomination for the post of the KPYC president is September 10. Ramya is reportedly filing her nomination soon and go on to meet the youth congress members in various districts seeking their support. The election will be held in the first week of October.
Although her father is an active Congress member in the state, Ramya will have to face a tough competition. The reason behind it is that Union Minister Mallikarjuna Kharge's son Priyanka Kharge, ex-Railways Minister Jaffer Sharief's grandson Rehman and senior congress leader Margaret Alva's son Nivedith Alva are in the contest.
However, Ramya is the only women candidate among the four contestants. Other three candidates have strong political background and support of bigwigs. Even Ramya has the support of Union Minister SM Krishna and her Ex-Minister DK Shivakumar. Moreover, she has star power and has huge fan following and maximum number of fans are youth. So she has many chances of winning the election.
