Not-so-Young Turk works to retain seat in Byatrayanapura

Incumbent MLA Krishna Byregowda is fighting the perception of not being accessible. 16 candidates are in the fray in this northern part of Bengaluru.


Byatarayanapura is a part of the Bangalore Urban District with around 3.1 lakh voters. It suffers from road infrastructure issues. Bus connectivity is also of concern to residents. Land encroachment is another troublesome issue. Bad roads have been a menace to this constituency. They’ve led to unbearable traffic and road accidents. Drinking water supply also remains inadequate. Reason being, borewells have gone dry.

The constituency consists of seven BBMP wards — Jakkur, Thanisandra, Byatarayanapura, Kodigehalli, Vidyaranyapura, Doddabommasandra and Kuvempunagar; as well as eight gram panchayats of Doddajalla, Chikkajalla, Hunsemaranahalli, Bagalur, Marenahalli, Sonappanahalli, Betta Halasooru, Bandi Kodigehalli; and three Zilla Panchayats of Betta Halasuru, Hunsemaranahalli, Bagalur.
