Mandya MP Sumalatha Ambareesh to join BJP today?-1Mandya: Independent MP from the Mandya Lok Sabha constituency, Sumalata Ambareesh will reportedly join the BJP today. She will be visiting the BJP's district office at 11 AM.

According to sources, Sumalatha requested all the BJP leaders from the district to attend this meeting as she is to take an important decision.

"She won as an independent MP from Mandya with the support of the Congress party. It is sad to see that she is leaning towards the BJP, which has no base in the district," said a Congress leader.

Sumalatha's decision comes amidst news reports that B Y Vijayendra, the younger son of Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, may contest in the KR Pet Assembly by-election.
