Former Housing Minister of Karnataka, superstar Ambareesh is fuming at Chief Minister Siddharamaiah who removed him from the minister's seat in the lastest round of cabinet reshuffle. An angry Ambareesh sent a one line resignation to the Deputy Speaker, resigning as the Congress' Member of Legislative Assembly from Mandya.
Deputy Speaker Shivsankara Reddy, who is currently officiating as speaker has rejected the resignation. The speaker has asked Ambareesh to submit the resignation in the right format.
Ambareesh supporters had protested in Mandya over his removal. But the CM recieved support from some activists and groups in the district who claimed that Ambareesh had done nothing to safeguard interests of farmers and others.
Ambareesh isn't the only one. Many Congress MLAs are upset at the CM's move and more resignations are likely to happen in the next few days.
Leading actors and producers of Sandalwood staged protests demanding Ambareesh be reinstated in the cabinet. His wife and popular actor Sumalatha has also been drumming up support for him.
