After questioning former Infosys colleague and technocrat Nandan Nilekani‘s credentials as a political candidate from Bangalore, Mohandas Pai has now targeted IT moguls who have struck gold in India‘s Silicon Valley for not doing enough for the metropolis.

“The big issue is that many people have created enormous wealth from the IT industry in Bangalore and have been residents of Bangalore. People are looking for big institutions from them as (Wipro founder Azim) Premji has done,” he said.

“There is some degree of unhappiness in this area,” added this former board member of Infosys Technologies. Pai’s earlier remark, made first in an interview to the media, that “nobody knows about what Nilekani had done for Bangalore” was a major embarrassment for the chairman of the Unique Identification Authority of India who is expected to contest this year’s Lok Sabha polls from Bangalore. Nilekani has yesterday confirmed that he would be contesting for the Congress. A noted figure in the industry, the technocrat would have been better off not allying himself to any political allegiance; but then individual choices are different.
