Bangalore, April 4: On being asked about his opponent Ananth Kumar's recent remarks about Nandan Nilekani carrying the baggage of the Congress, Nilekani responded, "I have a clear conscience. But the baggage that Ananth Kumar is carrying is his own, and its very heavy."

Congress candidate for Bengaluru South Nandan Nilekani boarded a bus on Friday morning to mark the Bus Day in Bengaluru.

He boarded the Route 2A BMTC bus from the Jayanagar bus stop, and got down at Indira Gandhi circle JP Nagar and paid a fare of Rs 12.

Nilekani participated in Bus Day in order to support the initiative. "I think Bus Day is a great effort to draw attention to our public transport systems. I think making our bus and metro systems truly efficient, and able to support Bengaluru's growing population, is very important for our city."

"When I asked our city's citizens for ideas to improve the city, many thousands wrote in. And many people provided suggestions and ideas to improve our public transport. BMTC is doing a wonderful job. I think with the support of these ideas, we can make our bus and metro systems truly world class," he added.

"One of the things we need is better connection between the various modes of transport - bus metro, the autos people take from their home," Nilekani said, "How do we ensure that it is convenient for people to move from point to point? How do we minimize waiting time? To do that, we have to ensure that our transport systems are well coordinated."

How do we minimize waiting time? To do that, we have to ensure that our transport systems are well coordinated."

He said, "Today, I sat next to Vinay on the bus. Vinay works in a software company, and this is his regular bus route. Each person like him who uses our public transport regularly relies on his particular bus being on time, not over-crowded, and convenient. The investments and improvements we make in our public transport systems must focus on this."
