At an event held by late rebel star Ambareesh's fan club in Maddur, late Ambareesh and Mandya MP Sumalatha's son Abhishek may now cause more tension to the regional party Janata Dal Secular JD(S).

Abhishek, while replying to reporters when asked about his entry into politics like his late father and now his MP mother Sumalatha, he dropped a big hint by saying, "If people wish that I should contest, I will."

Immediately this statement created ripples in JD(S) bastion Mandya and Old Mysuru region where the party has a significant presence.

Abhishek's comments are similar to his MP mother Sumalatha who despite objections from JD(S) contested the polls then. Sumalatha had then said that 'if people wish she contests, she will consider'.

Sumalatha contested as an independent candidate and won against the JD(S) candidate by over 75,000 vote margin.

Abhishek also said that in all seven taluks of Mandya district, there is a need for a good candidate.
