Known for his firebrand speeches, Tejasvi Surya, 28, has become the Bharatiya Janata Party’s youngest MP, defeating Congress’s B K Hariprasad in the Bangalore South constituency by 331,000 votes. 

In West Bengal, Trinamool Congress’s Mimi Chakraborty, an actor, registered a big victory from the Jadavpur seat with 688,000 votes against BJP’s Anupam Hazra. Nusrat Jahan, another actor who fought on a TMC ticket, was on her way to victory from Basirhat, with 718,000 votes, when this paper went to press.

Prajwal Revanna, son of Karnataka’s PWD minister H D Revanna, won from Hassan seat. He turned out to be the only face saver for the HD Deve Gowda family. 

A political worker from Kerala, Ramya Haridas, won from the reserved constituency of Alathur with a margin of over 158,000 votes. Congress-led UDF candidate Hibi Eden, who is also a sitting MLA in Ernakulam, and Dean Kuriakose, were the other candidates who emerged victorious.
