About Tejasvi Surya

Tejasvi Surya represents a new generation of Indian political leaders who will lead India into the 21st century.


Tejasvi Surya is the Member of Parliament from Bengaluru South constituency, often referred to as India’s Silicon Valley. He was elected to the Lok Sabha in the 2019 general election. Only 28 years old then, Surya emerged as an important symbol of the youth playing a crucial role in India’s polity, a cornerstone of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s scheme of things. In 2020, Surya took over as the National President of the BJP’s youth wing, the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM). The BJYM is the largest political youth organization in the world.


A lawyer by training and profession, Surya had a deep interest in history, philosophy, science and civilisational studies from a young age. His lectures and articles on these issues have had a large audience.


Ever since he was elected, Surya has taken up Bengaluru’s urban mobility crisis on a war footing, and has worked to get speedy clearances of big-ticket public transport solutions for the city.


Surya represents a constituency known for both Masala Dosa and Machine Learning. It’s a constituency where Filter Coffee and Filter Array JavaScript also go hand in hand. Therefore, Surya has left no stone unturned in harnessing technology to make government relief schemes and systems more transparent and accessible to the public.


He suggested various tech alterations to the BBMP’s (Bengaluru’s Municipal Corporation) Hospital Management Software during the COVID-19 pandemic, freeing up around 1,500 hospital beds for the use of affected citizens. He also devised the National Teleconsultation Helpline of the BJYM using a cloud calling software, which provided free consultation for over 6,500 patients.


As a parliamentarian, Surya has taken up issues of regional and national importance. From demanding the primacy of vernacular languages in central recruitment examinations to demanding the applicability of NRC throughout India, from advocating for reforms in the electronics policy to advocating for the accountability of intermediaries, Surya has been a strong voice for progressive reforms in Parliament.


As a member of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Technology and Office of Profit, he also performs the important role of parliamentary oversight.
