Bangalore: An IT magnate and the broom

The presence of an IT magnate, Nandan Nilekani, and the broom will make Bangalore’s tryst with Elections 2014 and must watch.

The BJP has a distinct advantage: all the three sitting Members of Parliament (MPs) from the city are from the party.
The party is in majority in the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), with 113 councilors.

Nandan-NilekaniThe BJP wants to have a head start, according the city unit chief Subbanna all councilors some prominent leaders have been asked to collect Rs.11,000 per booth.

The Congress, which according to the CNN-IBN Election Tracker, is doing fairly well in the rest of the state, seems at a disadvantage in Bangalore. It has 63 councilors, two of them have been expelled from the party during last Assembly elections.

To add to its cup of woes, three councilors (Govindaraju of Ganesh Mandir ward, Avvai of Sudhamanagar and Gowramma of Azadnagar) have corruption charges filed against them by the state Lokayukta.

The other party, the Janata Dal (Secular) of former Prime Minister Deve Gowda has two MLAs in Bangalore North Lok Sabha constituency. The party’s prospect in parliamentary polls seems rather bleak.

Do will the porake yaatre (broomstick rally) muddy the waters. That’s to be seen.

Up for grabs in Bangalore from a total of 6,300 polling booths spread over three Lok Sabha constituencies — Bangalore South, North and Central.

    The IT magnate associating himself with the corrupt Congress kills his chances!

    What is the IT magnates ethics when he has joined with that most corrupt of all parties, the Congress? It is another matter that he oversaw and designed the inefficient and invasive Aadhar stalking system which was rammed down our throats despite Parliamentary rejection, and stores all data in foreign servers with companies headed by ex-CIA operatives, which will threaten this nation’s security forever.
