A Transgender Candidate Challenges Prime Minister Modi!

The news of Prime Minister Narendra Modi contesting the Lok Sabha elections from Varanasi has always garnered attention. This time, however, the intrigue has intensified with a transgender candidate also throwing their hat in the ring against him.

Hemaangi Sakhi Mata, associated with the Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha, is the one challenging PM Modi from the same constituency. Born in Baroda, Gujarat, she is notable for being the first transgender individual in the world to teach the Bhagavad Gita. In 2019, she was anointed as Acharya Mahamandaleshwar. Hemaangi Sakhi Mata moved to Mumbai with her family, where her father worked as a film distributor. As a spiritual leader now contesting against Prime Minister Modi, this development is drawing significant interest.

In the past elections, Modi’s main competitors were from parties like AAP or SP, which moved forward with a secular agenda, while the BJP campaigned on Hindu nationalism. The entry of the Hindu Mahasabha with a candidate against the BJP, especially someone like Hemaangi Sakhi Mata, has caught everyone's attention. Though the Hindu Mahasabha shares a similar ideological space with the BJP, the question of why they decided to field a candidate against Prime Minister Modi himself has become a topic of curiosity. Netizens are eagerly searching to know more about Hemaangi Sakhi Mata, understanding the challenge against Modi, a strong national figure, is no small feat.
