Former actress and Congress social media cell in charge Ramya has said she is not contesting the upcoming Assembly election in Karnataka. After the confusion over Ambareesh contesting from Mandya constituency there was speculation that Ramya would be brought in his place.
But Ramya has brushed aside all speculation by making it clear that she will not be contesting. The suspense over who will contest from Mandya therefore continues. From the last two decades Ambareesh has made Mandya his political base. In recent years Ramya has emerged as another important politician from the district after winning a Lok Sabha bypoll from there which she subsequently lost.
