Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], June 27 (ANI): JDS national president HD Deve Gowda on Thursday nominated former minister R Leeladevi Prasad as the chief of the party's state women wing.
He has also nominated Ruth Manorama as the president of Bengaluru city's women wing.
At the age of 22, Prasad had become the first female corporator of Bengaluru in 1956.
The rejig in JDS' organisational structure comes after the party put up a poor show in the Lok Sabha elections in the state recently.
The JDS, along with Congress, which runs the coalition government in the state, won one seat each in the parliamentary elections.
The BJP won 25 of the 28 seats along with an Independent backed by it.
Despite simmering political differences coming out in the open at times, the two parties have repeatedly said there is no threat to the coalition and the government will last for the full term of five years. (ANI)
