Bangalore North Lok Sabha constituency (Kannada: ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು ಉತ್ತರ ಲೋಕ ಸಭೆ ಚುನಾವಣಾ ಕ್ಷೇತ್ರ) is one of the 28 Lok Sabha (lower house of the Indian Parliament) constituencies in the South Indian state of Karnataka. This constituency has been known by different names in its history. For the 1951 and every election since 1977 it has been known as Bangalore North. For the 1957 and 1962 elections it was known as Bangalore City. For the 1967 and 1971 elections it formed a constituency jointly with Bangalore South and was known as Bangalore. From 1951–73, this constituency resided in Mysore State. On 1 November, 1973 Mysore State was renamed as Karnataka.[2] Bangalore North held its first elections in 1951 and its first member of parliament (MP) was Keshava Iyengar of the Indian National Congress (INC). He was re-elected in the next election in 1957. K. Hanumanthaiya also of the INC represented this constituency for three consecutive terms from 1962 to 1977. C. K. Jaffer Sharief of the INC was its MP for five consecutive terms from 1977–1996 before being defeated in the 1996 election by C. Narayanaswamy of the Janata Dal party. This brought to an end a 45 year period where this constituency had been represented by a member of the INC from 1951–96. Sharief became the MP once again in 1998. He was also re-elected in 1999 to serve his seventh term as MP for this constituency.[3] H. T. Sangliana of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) represented this constituency in 2004. D. B. Chandre Gowda also of the BJP was elected in the 2009 election. As of the latest elections in 2014, its current MP is D. V.
