Bengaluru, Apr 03: In Mandya the Cauvery heartland, the 2019 ballot battle has turn into a status problem for the JD(S)-Congress mix, which is making all-out efforts to make sure victory for Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy’s son Nikhil Gowda, after common Kannada movie star Ambareesh’s widow Sumalatha entered into ballot fray.

The seat is within the Vokkaliga neighborhood heartland the place H D Deve Gowda’s celebration holds sway. The JD(S) had gained all of the eight meeting segments underneath the Mandya Lok Sabha constituency within the 2018 Karnataka elections.

As Mandya deemed to be the most secure, in addition to Hassan section, for the JD(S) in all the state, the chief minister determined to discipline his actor-son. Sumalatha’s shock entry has upset the equations on this heartland of Vokkaligas, a dominant caste in southern Karnataka.

Sensing a possibility, the Bharatiya Janata Social gathering (BJP) which has no presence, has agreed to again her. Furthermore, the JD(S)-Congress coalition which governs the state seems absent on the bottom.

Although JD(S) has a formidable presence right here, with eight MLAs and two Ministers from Mandya, Sumalatha is predicted to place up a troublesome struggle.

The massive crowd that turned up when she filed her nomination suggests, this Vokkaliga-dominated seat won’t be a walkover for the JD(S).

Ambareesh, a Vokkaliga actor with an outstanding fan following on this lush Cauvery belt, was a three-time MP from Mandya and, for a short whereas, a minister within the Manmohan Singh authorities in 2006.

Including heft to her marketing campaign, many tremendous stars like Dharshan and Yash are actively supporting Sumalatha which has upset HD Kumaraswamy. Cheluvarayaswamy one other JDs insurgent chief can also be supporting Sumalatha.

Actor Rajanikanth, who has co-starred with Sumalatha in just a few Tamil movies, is predicted to hitch later.

Aside from the Sandalwood help, Sumalatha has additionally been profitable in garnering help from the titular Mysuru royal household scion Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar. “Ambareesh was with our family during our tough times. He has also been a very close aide to my father, the late Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar. The Mysuru royal family wishes all the best to Sumalatha,” he stated.

As Nikhil too belongs to the politically dominant Vokkaliga neighborhood within the state, particularly within the outdated Mysuru area, the JD-S hoped that he’ll be capable to defeat Sumalatha and retain the constituency, wherein the celebration had gained all of the eight meeting seats within the Could 12, 2018 elections.

With JD(S) patriarch Deve Gowda launching his grandson and Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy’s son Nikhil from the seat, the celebration’s sitting MP L R Shivarame Gowda is reportedly upset over not being given the ticket, regardless of successful the Mandya bypoll just a few months in the past.

What individuals have discovered surprising is that Kumaraswamy and different JD(S) leaders are busy day-in, day-out making insensitive remarks towards Sumalatha to decrease her vanity.

The celebration’s anxiousness could possibly be gauged from the truth that about 10 days in the past PWD minister and Deve Gowda’s son H D Revanna stoked an argument by saying Sumalatha made a foray into politics inside months of dropping her husband. His remark drew flak from all quarters.

However the dignity and poise with which she has dealt with these insults and the deft method wherein she is using on Ambareesh’s lingering reputation within the area, appear to be turning right into a wave of sympathy in her favour. If the enthusiastic crowds becoming a member of her marketing campaign every day are any indication, she goes to offer a critical run for the Gowda scion’s cash, affect and energy.

AT grass root degree the congress employees are confused and refused to work for JD(S) candidates. It’s occurring in in a number of locations together with Mandya. The opposite associate of the ruling alliance, the Congress, has directed all its employees to again Nikhil.

In the previous few days as Sumalatha’s enchantment among the many voters has gained appreciable momentum and the Congress employees and native leaders have joined her in droves, the JD(S) appears to be urgent panic button, indulging in vilification marketing campaign towards her and likewise misusing the official equipment to place hurdles in her method.

As for Sumalatha, reaching victory goes to be a stupendous job: No impartial candidate has been elected to the Lok Sabha from Karnataka within the final 52 years and he or she has to re-write historical past to take action.
