In a shocking turn of events, news of actress-turned-politician Divya Spandana, also known as Ramya, being declared dead, flooded social media on Wednesday. However, multiple credible news outlets have now categorically debunked this rumor, confirming that the Congress leader is not only alive but also currently on a tour in Geneva.

Divya Spandana’s Significant Role
To provide some background information about Divya Spandana, the Kannada actor first joined the Youth Congress in 2012. During her tenure, she served as the head of social media for the Congress party. Her role was pivotal in reshaping the social media presence of the Congress and its leader, Rahul Gandhi.

Some X users claimed that the rumour may have begun from the confusion over the same name.
