Karnataka: Tejaswini Ananth Kumar appointed as BJP Vice President

Tejaswini Ananth Kumar wife of late Union Minister Ananth Kumar was on Tuesday appointed as the state vice-president of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

The development came days after Tejaswini was denied a Lok Sabha ticket from south Bengaluru parliamentary constituency, a seat which was represented by her husband Ananth Kumar since 1996. 

Ananth Kumar passed away in November 2018 after battling with cancer. 

BJP Karnataka president BS Yeddyurappa announced the news on his Twitter account.

“I am very delighted to announce that Smt. @Tej_AnanthKumar has been appointed as state vice president of @BJP4Karnataka,” Yeddyurappa tweeted.
