Legislative Participation of MLA’s
An MLA is the elected representative of the people in a constituency and is responsible for representing their interests in the state legislature. Bengaluru Urban elects 27 MLAs to the Vidhana Sabha and knowing about your respective MLA is essential for active participation in the democratic process.
By knowing who our MLA is, we can communicate our concerns, opinions, and ideas to them, which improves accountability and transparency. Engaging with the MLA, provides an opportunity to be a part of the local political process and participate in the development of policies and programs that impact communities.
