Bangalore never had Woman mp - Cong Aiming to Write History...

There has never been a female member of parliament from Bangalore, but Congresswoman sowmya reddy hopes to change that. The 41-year old, who previously served as the Jayanagar MLA, is no stranger to politics. She was devastated to lose by just 16 votes in her attempt to win reelection in this city constituency during the previous year's assembly elections.In the upcoming lok sabha elections, she will data-face off against Tejasvi Surya, the chairman of the bjp youth Wing and mp for Bangalore South. Bangalore South is a bastion of bjp power.

This sector was represented by the late H N Ananth Kumar, a Union minister, for six terms in a row beginning in 1996. sowmya, the daughter of Transport minister Ramalinga reddy and a prominent congress leader, seems unfazed.

The party has thrown its weight behind her, as have chief minister Siddaramaiah and deputy chief minister D K shiva Kumar, who is also the state congress chief. In addition to spreading hate and engaging in polarizing politics during the past five years, sowmya claimed that Surya, the president of the Bharatiya Janata yuva Morcha, has failed to represent karnataka in Parliament. Bangalore South is divided into eight seats for the Assembly. The congress won three and the bjp won five of the assembly seats in 2023.

When praising the late Ananth Kumar for his work as a parliamentarian, sowmya was very kind. Although Mr. Ananth Kumar was a member of the bharatiya janata party (BJP), she said that the only reason the party remained in power for so long was because of his ability to work across party lines and maintain contact with his constituents even after elections.
