As per report earlier on Friday, hundreds of Ambareesh fans gathered outside Sumalatha's residence in Bengaluru and requested her to contest the Lok Sabha elections as an independent candidate. Meanwhile, when speaking to the media after interacting with the fans, Sumalatha said, "Ambareesh's fans were very supportive when he contested elections.
Furthermore even after his death, they are offering to support her and she had never given a thought about entering politics or contesting elections in the past. When seeing the amount of respect they have for Ambareesh and her, she do not want to disappoint them”. Reportedly the actor also said that she had not yet held talks with leaders of any political party and if she decides to contest, Sumalatha is unsure whether she wants to be a Congress candidate and get embroiled in the tension on ground in Mandya between JDS and Congress.
Moreover JD(S) insiders say that the party is not happy with the Congress' move to bring Sumalatha into electoral politics as it would then become difficult for Kumaraswamy's son Nikhil Gowda to enter the fray. Although Deve Gowda is not inclined towards offering Nikhil a ticket, the chances of him getting one would become lesser if Sumalatha decides to enter electoral politics. It would be worse if she contested as an independent as it would split the vote bank”.
