Mandya: The ongoing campaign for the crucial ZP/TP polls witnessed verbal spat between former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy and former MP and actor Ramya in Mandya.
The comments made by the both leaders have turned too personal which led to them resorting to abuse each other publicly.

The verbal attack between Ramya and MP C S Puttaraju during the first two days of the campaign in the district escalated after H D Kumaraswamy reacted to Ramya’s statements.

During his campaign, Kumaraswamy claimed that after Ramya entered into the district, the number of farmer deaths have increased. “Don’t get lured by the colourful speeches made by film stars,” he had told the gathering.

Ramya who reacted to HDK’s statements had said that he too is a film producer and his wife Radhika and two sons are also actors. “How can he disrespect artistes?” she asked.

Ramya also went on to say that Kumaraswamy wears a gold watch at home and ordinary watch in public.

Kumaraswamy, clarifying his remarks said that he had not insulted artistes, but had particularly mentioned the name of Ramya.

In response to her accusation about his watch he said, “Has Ramya come to my home to see me wearing gold watch?” and added that she has no right to speak about her daughter as it was a personal matter.

Warning her about her actions he said, “Let Ramya tell people what she was doing in London? She should be careful while speaking about others’ personal lives”.

Ramya on Wednesday spoke to media persons and said that it was the JD(S) party that had raised questions about her personal life, when she was actually mourning the death of her father.

“They continued their attack even after my victory. Now, Kumaraswamy’s statements about farmers’ death have hurt me deeply,” she said.

“I had been to London to study. Let Kumaraswamy explain why he frequently visits Sri Lanka? I have the answers and also know to speak,” she warned.

“I don’t fear anyone and speak only the truth. I have visited Radhika’s house and know that you wear a gold watch. You own a Hummer, Audi and BMW cars, but speak about others’ watches, is it right?” she questioned.

JD(S) has support only in Mandya district. Kumaraswamy is targeting me out of fear of losing the hold on the district”, she said in an accusatory tone.
