Kannada Star Heroes Yash and Darshan took part in the rally conducted by Sumalatha after filing her nomination as Independent in Mandya Lok Sabha Constituency. JD (S) Leaders are unable to accept the support extended to the Senior Actress by Top Celebrities as their party chief & CM's Son Nikhil Gowda is contesting from the same segment.
JD (S) MLA Narayana Gowda threatened to teach a lesson to Star Heroes who are backing the candidature of Sumalatha. 'Better if Kannada Actors remain at their homes instead of criticising JD (S) while campaigning for Sumalatha. We don't mind going for I-T Raids. What Yash and Darshan has got to do with politics?,' he questioned.
'KGF' Hero Yash responded seriously on the threat message from JD (S) MLA - 'Sumalatha told Me I might have to face I-T Raid for supporting her. She had tears in her eyes while saying it. JD (S) MLA issued this threat. Some people say we committed a blunder by supporting Sumalatha. We are happy to continue do the same till our last breath even if its a blunder. We haven't been Pakistanis. I have a strong connect with Mandya Constituency'.
Complaints were lodged with Election Commission against the objectionable comments made by the JD (S) Legislator.
