The presence of the Prime Minister in Mandya is also important from the political point of view, as assembly elections are to be held in the state in May. Mandya district is a major part of the old Mysuru region and has traditionally been a stronghold of the Janata Dal Secular (S). The district has seven assembly constituencies and all but one are held by the JD(S). The BJP was able to make inroads in Mandya district by winning one seat (KR Pet) during the by-elections held in 2019.
