Koda, who was in the capital Friday to discuss the state's annual plan outlay with Planning Commission officials, refuted media reports that Koena Mitra was appointed as the brand ambassador of Jharkhand.
'There was never any such move on the part our government. We never appointed any Bollywood actress called Koena Mitra as the state's brand ambassador,' Koda told the media after the meeting.
Referring to his photograph along with Koena published in a section of media, Koda said this did not mean the state government appointed her its brand ambassador.
'It was a just a photograph, which does not amount to appointing any heroine as Jharkhand's brand ambassador. It was a figment of media speculation,' Koda said.
