Meet Madhavi Latha: The BJP’s Hindutva Face Set to Challenge Owaisi in Hyderabad

As the battle for Hyderabad constituency heats up, all eyes are on Madhavi Latha, the Hindutva face set to challenge incumbent Asaduddin Owaisi in the upcoming elections.

For decades, Hyderabad Lok Sabha constituency has remained a stronghold of the Majlis (All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen), with Asaduddin Owaisi dominating the political landscape since 2004, following in the footsteps of his father, Sultan Salahuddin Owaisi. However, the BJP aims to disrupt this narrative by fielding Dr. Madhavi Latha, signaling a strategic move to target traditionally weaker constituencies.

“Dharmo rakshati rakshitah (Dharma protects those who protect it),” remarked Madhavi Latha upon her nomination as the Hyderabad candidate, underscoring her commitment to Hindutva principles.

Who is Madhavi Latha?

Madhavi Latha, also known as Kompella Madhavi Latha, emerged as a prominent figure in the BJP’s campaign against triple talaq. Beyond her political endeavors, she serves as the chairman of Hyderabad’s Virinchi Hospital, bringing a blend of cultural activism and medical expertise to the forefront.

A professional Bharatnatyam dancer and a mother of three, Madhavi Latha gained attention for her advocacy of homeschooling, with her eldest child securing admission to IIT. Her diverse background includes a stint in the NCC cadet and academic pursuits in political science.

Married to Vishwanath, the founder and chairman of Virinchi Hospital, Madhavi Latha is renowned for her religious discourse and involvement in various charitable organizations, including the Lopamudra Charitable Trust and LathaMa Foundation.

At 49, Madhavi Latha makes history as the first female candidate fielded by the BJP in Hyderabad, marking a significant milestone in her political journey.

Challenges Ahead

Madhavi Latha’s nomination from Owaisi’s bastion has stirred curiosity, yet she asserts her year-long groundwork in the constituency. Highlighting issues of poverty, education, and illegal occupation, she emphasizes the need for change and accountability in Hyderabad’s Old City.

“Imagine what a constituency should have become after 40 years of representation in a democracy. It’s time for retirement,” asserts Madhavi Latha, echoing sentiments of discontent among voters.

Dismissing notions of Owaisi being BJP’s ‘B team,’ Madhavi Latha reaffirms her candidacy as a standalone endeavor to address the grievances of Hyderabad’s populace.

As the electoral battleground intensifies, Madhavi Latha’s candidacy symbolizes the BJP’s strategic maneuvering in traditionally uncharted territories, setting the stage for a gripping electoral showdown in Hyderabad.
