Nilekani said he was excited that Ambareesh, who enjoys a sizeable following, was campaigning for him.
Referring to the BJP, Ambareesh alleged that crores of rupees of taxpayers’ money had been mismanaged to the extent that the government had to move to pledge a city landmark like Town Hall.
“If you are genuinely concerned about Bangalore’s welfare you will definitely vote for Nandan Nilekani,” Ambareesh added.
