Mysuru, February 25:- BJP councillor Sunanda Palanetra has resigned after failing to become the Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) Mayor.
Sunanda, who was hopeful till the last minute, was thoroughly disappointed after Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) agreed to align. Councillor from Ward 59 of Kuvempunagar, Sunanda has sent her resignation to Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa and BJP city president T S Srivatsa.
In her letter, she said, “I have been a sincere party worker for the last 25 years. I contested for the Mayor’s post and lost. This is really disappointing and as such, it is tough for me to continue as a councillor. I request you to accept my resignation with immediate effect.” (MR/KS)
