Pralhad Joshi

Biography

An industrialist by vocation, Pralhad Joshi ingratiated himself into the political fray by organizing a movement to hoist the Tri-colour flag at Idagah Maidan (Also known as Kittur Rani chennamma Maidan) Hubli Karnataka during 1992-1994. He was then elected the president of BJP in Dharwad district. He first contested in the 14th Lok Sabha elections in 2004 where he won the Dharwad constituency by defeating INC's B.S Patil. He's won three consecutive elections from that constituency and is the incumbent MP of Dharwad.
