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.
Incumbent MLA Krishna Byregowda holds a Master’s degree in international affairs. He claims to have spent 6.3 crores approximately in building parks, footpath, street lights and help maintain lakes. His website says he helped develop a basketball and skating court in Sahakarnagar; and supported skill development programmes through grants.
Residents feel that Gowda was not accessible during his tenure as MLA. There’s a threefold increase in his wealth since 2009 from Rs 2.6 crore to Rs 6.2 crore. Krishna Byregowda has been endorsed by BPAC.
