The supporters of Sumalatha Ambareesh and Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy's son clashed outside a polling booth in Mandya district. The clashes showed the tense situation during the Lok Sabha election in Karnataka, where a lot is stake for BJP and JD(S)-Congress alliance. BJP has fielded candidates in all the constituencies of Karnataka, except Mandya, where it has extended support to independent candidate Sumalatha, wife of the late actor-turned-politician Ambareesh. Karnataka CM has left no stone unturned to campaign for his son Nikhil in Mandya along with his cabinet colleagues for the past few days.
