Disgruntled Congress party workers vandalised party office in Mandya district after Congress announced its first list of candidates for the upcoming Karnataka Assembly polls in May. Congress party leader Ravikumar's supporters damaged office furniture and threw papers around for denying ticket to Ravikumar. While Congress gave a ticket to sitting MLA actor Ambarish, Ravikumar's aides demanded that the party revise its list and give a ticket to ticket aspirant Ravikumar.
