Maadhavi, who joined the BJP in 2018, said ever since she joined politics some people had been making personal attacks on her. She blamed some groups linked with the TRS, the YSR Congress, the Congress and the TDP and few caste groups.
“Some sections of media and social media are resorting to my character assassination. If some girls are caught in some case, they are dragging my name and publishing my picture,” she said.
The actor said the trolling and objectionable posts were causing her mental agony. “My patience has a limit. I can’t take this anymore. I hope the police will take the action,” she said.
Alleging that she is also being threatened by some people, Maadhavi said if necessary she would approach police for a gun license.
