Nandan Nilekani logs into politics

Bangalore: The first real confirmation that Nandan Nilekani, one of the city’s most remarkable IT success stories, is going to dive head into the political world has come.

DC poll: Should Nandan Nilekani take the plunge into politics?

Karnataka PCC President G. Parameshwar said that the co-founder of IT bellwether Infosys and the head of UIDAI had 'expressed his intent', to contest Lok Sabha polls on the prestigious Cong­ress ticket from Bangalore South constituency, when they met in Delhi.

“People like Nilekani expressing their intent to become a Congress candidate is something we feel really happy about,” Parameswhar said.

His cautious note of optimism belies the huge expectations that rest with Nilekani’s candidature in a seat won by BJP stalwart Ananth Kumar five times in a row, and in a climate created by the advent of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), that has set off a clamour for candidates with a clean, apolitical track record.

There is intense speculation that Nilekani, not a primary member of the party but a part of UPA2 for the last four years, could even be named as the prime ministerial candidate of the Congress party.
