Troubles seem to be haunting Telugu Mahila president Roja from all sides. Even as the controversy over her filthy remarks against Praja Rajyam leader Sobha Rani is still fresh in the mind of the people, the report that her husband Selvamani was arrested in Chennai is created a fresh trouble for her.
Selvamani, a popular film director, was arrested a couple of days ago for raising slogans in support of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, a banned organisation of Sri Lanka. Though the incident happened in Tamil Nadu, it is expected to have a bearing on Roja’s electoral prospects.
Sources said the Congress leaders are trying to raise pro-LTTE stand of Roja’s husband during the election campaign in Chandragiri constituency, alleging the couple of being anti-national. “How can Roja’s husband praise LTTE which had claimed the life of Rajiv Gandhi? And why didn’t Roja condemn the same?” they are asking. Surely, Roja needs to give an answer.
