Roshan Baig

Roshan Baig

Shivajinagar Constituency

Roshan was born premature and as a child was not a bright student. He failed his 8th standard exams and was not permitted to take the 10th standard ones due to attendance shortage. Ultimately, he passed high school and took an admission to RC College in Bengaluru, where he contested his first ever election, for the elective post of General Secretary against Nagathihalli Chandrashekhar. After getting a bachelor’s degree in commerce, he joined Government Law college for his L.L.B and later became a full-time politician due to his burgeoning political career. He won the 1985 state elections for the 8th Assembly with the Janata Party. After division of the Janata party, he moved to the Indian National Congress party. As a civil servant, he claims his attendance to the assembly is 99%. He considers the House as sacred and a privilege and so has never slept in the House.
