Ambareesh maintains silence; Cong confused

Ambareesh maintains silence; Cong confused

The Congress high command is in a state of confusion, as MLA Ambareesh has not responded to the deadline given by K C Venugopal, the Congress in-charge of the state. The deadline expired on April 8.

As he was conspicuous by his absence during the visit of AICC president Rahul Gandhi to the state, the party high command asked him to inform his stand on contesting from Mandya Assembly constituency. There were rumours that his wife Sumalatha and his close confidantes could contest from Mandya.

However, Ambareesh has maintained silence over the issue giving rise to speculations.

Around 500 of his supporters met him in Bengaluru and invited him to the district. Despite this, Ambareesh did not issue statements leaving the Congress confused.

It is said that Ambareesh told his followers on Sunday, who went to remind him of the deadline, that he would take a call on the issue by Monday. There are rumours that Ambareesh has been demanding the party to hand over five 'B' forms to him for five constituencies, except Malavalli and Nagamangala.
