She retorted that they are just lies created by journalists.
She said that, ” I have no complaints against anyone except the journalist who during my hour of crisis made up a statement attributed to me.That statement was circulated everywhere. I had no idea about it as I had no access to newspapers or websites for two months.But I am completely unaffected by the entire episode. It was unnecessary but Life looks beautiful and hopeful now.” But she has not denied her involvement in the case.
