A ground-level survey of the Bengaluru South Lok Sabha constituency was conducted by India News to analyse the performance of Tejasvi Surya, the Member of Parliament from Bengaluru South, and gather voters’ feedback about him.

The country’s largest IT hub is Bengaluru, also known as the Silicon Valley or the IT capital of India. Among India’s major cities, it has the highest elevation. Bengaluru entices tourists from around the world with its pleasant weather. The city plays a significant role in South Indian politics, particularly in the Bengaluru South Lok Sabha constituency.
Tejasvi Surya, a young leader from the BJP, currently represents this constituency in the Lok Sabha. In the 2019 general elections, Tejasvi Surya, the youngest BJP candidate, secured a remarkable victory against Congress’ B.K. Hariprasad, with a margin of over two lakh votes.

A lawyer by profession, Surya actively participated in various programs of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad during his college days in Bengaluru. He played a crucial role in the BJP’s campaign during the 2018 Karnataka Assembly elections and successfully organized the Mangalore Chalo rally in 2017.
As a young leader, Tejasvi Surya has carved a niche for himself. Bengaluru South has witnessed 16 elections so far, with Congress winning in the early ones. However, after the Emergency, the Janata Party won thrice consecutively. Since 1991, the BJP has been consistently winning this seat. The late BJP leader Ananth Kumar represented this seat for six consecutive terms.

Bengaluru South is entirely an urban constituency, known for its rapid development. The pace of development is uniform across all assembly constituencies, making it a showcase for progress. The constituency has approximately 20 lakh voters. Ananth Kumar’s legacy is said to have a significant influence on the voters, and during elections, caste cards hold no sway here.

The development in Bengaluru South is not only due to the efforts of the local MP but also because of the central government’s initiatives. The connectivity of this Lok Sabha seat is remarkable. However, there are still unresolved issues that have persisted for years. The 2024 general elections are crucial for Bengaluru South, with the electorate critically evaluating the work of their MP. India News is conducting an accurate survey to gauge the public’s opinion, and the people’s verdict will soon be in front of the nation.
