History has been created in the State, with a first ever independent candidate winning Lok Sabha election. Mrs. Sumalatha Ambareesh, who fought a alone battle against the entire ruling coalition government, has recorded an emphatic victory with a margin of more than 50 thousand.
While the entire self-respecting (swabhimani) voters of Mandya Lok Sabha constituency and several organisations backed Sumalatha Ambareesh, it was the 'jodettu', a term coined by Chief Minister Kumaraswamy, referring to Challenging Star Darshan and Rocking Star Yash, who relentlessly campaigned for their mother, have been the biggest force behind the record victory.
Apart from Mr. Kumaraswamy, the two stars had to face series of personal attack against them for campaigning in favour of Mrs. Sumalatha Ambareesh. However, jodettu, who stuck to the ground were hundred per cent confident of Mrs. Sumalatha Ambareesh win.
It may be also noted that 'Nikhil Yellidiyappa', a phrase which became popular across the globe was another trending factor during the Lok Sabha elections.
Meanwhile, according to sources, Jodettu along with Mrs Sumalatha Ambareesh will address the self-respecting Mandyians and to those who everyone supported their cause. It is also expected that Mrs. Sumalatha Ambareesh will hold a victory rally in Mandya thanking the voters.
