Mandya: An Indian American of Mandya origin is one of the key strategists of Joe Biden Biden’s election campaign and is expected to occupy an important post in the new administration if US President Donald Trump loses polls.

Murthy, a native of Halagere in Mandya district and a physician, has served as former Vice Admiral in the Public Health Service Commissioned Corps and as the 19th Surgeon General of the United States, who addressed the Democratic National Convention. He was President Barack Obama’s youngest surgeon general in 2014 and now is one of the key strategists of Biden’s election campaign.

Grandson of HT Narayan Shetty, a backward class leader and a close associate of former Karnataka chief minister late D Devaraj Urs, Murthy has not forgotten his roots. He visits Hallegere every year and has donated millions of dollars to promote education in his ancestral place. He also conducts free camps under his family-funded Scope Foundation. A team of doctors, along with his family members, have conducted free eye camps and operated on 60 people in the past.

Dr. Murthy is an alumni of Mysore Medical College, who served in various capacities in the UK. Dr Murthy’s sister Rashmi is also a physician in Florida.

It will be party time for Dr Murthy’s folks back home in Karnataka if Biden makes it to the most powerful job in the world.
