BJP names Tejaswi Surya for Bangalore South

 NEW  DELHI, MARCH 26TH 

 

The BJP on Tuesday named its Karnataka Yuva Morcha General Secretary Tejaswi Surya as candidate for the prestigious Banagalore South Lok Sabha constituency, which goes to poll on April 18.

 Said  to be a fiery orator, Surya is considered to be a protege of the party's right wing parent organisation -- the Rashtriya Swayam Sevak (RSS).

 The surprise selection of the "young turk" dashes hopes of Tejaswini, widow of late Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister H.N. Ananth Kumar, contesting from the high-profile seat, which her husband had won for a record six times since 1996.
