Nandan Nilekani , the former UIDAI chief and co-founder of Infosys, who has recently joined Congress,disclosed details of his assets while filing his nomination for Lok Sabha.
He recalled when he co-founded Infosys, he had Rs 200 in his pocket and today he has assets worth Rs 7,700 crores !!
But one thing that might be keeping politicians baffled is, if he has already made so much money legitimately, why is he required to join politics ? 😀
After Manish Tewari declared himself unfit and decided not to fight polls from Ludhiana,its the Union Finance Minister,P Chidambaram who is not going to fight elections from Sivaganga, Tamil Nadu from where he was elected an MP in 2004 and 2009 and instead his son Kirti Chidambaram will replace him.
Is this just co-incidence or fear of loss ? 😉
After Nandan Nilekani, the former Infosys boss joined Congress to contest for the upcoming Lok Sabha Polls from Bangalore,another former board member of Infosys, V Balakrishnan, joined AAP. Although he preferred not to contest against his former colleague.
Looks like Infosys will have many politicians applying for jobs in the coming days. 😉
