Explaining the reason for not attending the function she said, “An invitation by our honorable Chief Minister M.G. Ramchandran sir was an event that I could not even dream to boycott.”
She informed, “As I prepared with enthusiasm and was eager to attend the function I was suddenly broken down by a phone call.”
