Similar strategy was adopted by JD (S) to defeat Sumalatha Ambareesh in Mandya Lok Sabha Constituency. The Senior Actress is contesting as Independent after Congress Party denied her MP Ticket to appease its alliance partner JD (S). Karnataka CM HD Kumaraswamy fielded none other than his Son Nikhil Gowda of 'Jaguar' fame in this prestigious constituency.
As the mood of the people is in favour of Sumalatha, JD (S) came up with a plan to confuse the voters and improve its poll prospects. As many as three Sumalathas have submitted their nominations to contest as Independent Candidates on Tuesday. Even Sumalatha Ambareesh is contesting as an Independent. So, Voters of Mandya Constituency will be left confused on the polling day. How could Sumalatha Ambareesh overcome this major hurdle?
