BJP Corporator Sunanda Palanetra, who tasted defeat in polls for the Mayor in Mysuru held on Wednesday, will tender her resignation as a corporator.

The Corporator has written a letter to Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa and BJP city unit president Srivatsa in this regard.

In her letter, she mentioned that she has been serving the BJP for the last 25 years and the upsetting defeat has rendered her unable to concentrate on developmental activites of Ward 59, which she represents.

Palanetra sought suggestions from party leaders.

BJP had fielded Palanetra as its Mayor candidate. The party leaders had full hopes on getting the JD(S) support but, JD(S) joined hands with Congress party. JD(S) corporator Rukmini Madegowda elected as Mayor and Congress's Anwar Baig as deputy mayor.
