Actress-turned-politician Ramya has hit back at Jaggesh over his jibe against her. She reportedly said that she is not bothered about such comments made by "jobless" people.

"There is unemployment issue and many do not have jobs. So, to show their importance they indulge in such activities," Ramya told News 9. 

Last week, Jaggesh had mocked Ramya saying that she was trying to win a Nobel prize and was just trying to draw the attention of national leaders by making comments on national issues. This, he said, could help her secure some post in the party.

Ramya has been in news after she made a comment that Pakistan is not hell and people living in the country are just humans like us. She attended the meeting of young parliamentarians in the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC).

The actress-turned-politician was responding to Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar's statement which said that "going to Pakistan is like going to hell." The Kannada actor had said: "Pakistan is not hell. People there are just like us. They treated us very well."

Her positive comment on Pakistan created uproar and a sedition charge for filed against her.

Ramya vs Jaggesh
Ramya and Jaggesh have been at loggerheads for quite some time now. It all started after the actress, who was working with him in  "Neer Dose," decided to walk out of the film following her entry into politics and subsequently winning the Mandya Lok Sabha seat in a by-poll in 2013.
