BJP’s youngest Lok Sabha candidate Tejaswi Surya is all set to enter the Indian Parliament as he cruses to a victory in Bangalore South.
As per latest election commission data, Surya has polled 553,232 votes so far, thus notching a lead of over 2.5 lakh votes over Congress candidate B K Hariprasad.
The 28-year-old Surya is a popular figure on social media and was given the party ticket at the expense of late BJP leader Ananth Kumar’s widow Tejaswini. This had led to media speculating a possible rift within the party. Tejaswini was later appointed the BJP vice president.
