Mandya Lok Sabha: Sumalatha Ambareesh to contest as Independent candidate

The order clarified that the order would not be applicable to private channels and theatres. Mandya votes on April 18 in the second phase of polling.

Sumalatha decided to contest as an independent and is likely to get the backing of the BJP. Moreover several local Congress leaders are miffed that the seat was given to Kumaraswamy's son, Nikhil who is contesting on a JD(S) ticket.

Sumalatha is hoping to win the seat and is banking on the sympathy wave following the death of her husband, who was a three time MP and one time MLA from the constituency.
