Ramya aka Divya Spandana has been on a career high recently after the success of her recent film Sanju Weds Geetha. The actress has taken a big political step now. She has joined the Youth Congress as an ordinary member of the Congress Party and has made her decision public on Twitter.

`I have joined the youth congress. Will you join the party`, says Ramya in her twitter page.  The news of Ramya joining the Congress Party had been making the rounds the past few months after she had met Rahul Gandhi. Ramya has also confirmed the news of her joining congress with press correspondents.

Ramya says she has been invited by none other than Rahul Gandhi and she has just responded to the invitation. But, Ramya has always been close to the Congress and is in fact a relative to Union Minister S.M.Krishna. Another Congress politician Ambareesh who
heads the Kannada film artists association is her mentor and guide.

Surprisingly, Ramya has joined the Congress Party after the conclusion of voting in the three by-elections held in Karnataka. Had
she made the decision a little earlier, she could have been one of the star campaigners of the party.
