Trailblazer Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan completes eventful four years and enters her fifth year in service as the Governor of Telangana State on September 8. During the last four years, the Hyderabad Raj Bhavan has been constantly in the news and enjoyed the never before spotlight. No wonder, Tamilisai Soundararajan is now a household name in the State.

The highly qualified Gynecologist-turned-politician, Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan was appointed as the second Governor of the Telangana State on September 8 in 2019. It is a rare coincidence that her birthday is also on June 2, which also happens to be the Telangana State Formation Day.

Prior to her appointment as the Constitutional Head of the Telangana, she was serving as the BJP Tamil Nadu State Unit president from 2014 to 2019.


Many thought that the elevation was in due recognition of her firebrand political contribution, despite the opposition and dominance of Dravidian parties, in galvanizing the BJP in Tamil Nadu, where she had to face some physical attacks too by her political opponents. The daughter of a staunch Gandhian and former TN Pradesh Congress Committee President Mr. Kumari Ananthan, she was not the one to relent and concede the defeat.

She never bowed down in her spiritual and political ideology, and chose her own path by joining the BJP against her legendary father’s wishes. It is well known that her father did not speak to her for two years opposing her joining the BJP then.

Now, it is a different story that she takes great care of her ailing father. Every now and then, the nonagenarianenjoys a wheelchair ride around the imposing Raj Bhavan and might feel proud of his defiant daughter’s phenomenal rise in public life albeit in a different ideology.
