Bangalore, Mar 4: Giving wings to his political aspirations, Infosys co-founder and Aadhar chairman Nandan Nilekani said that 'he will provide Bangalore a real ambassador who will fight for the city's cause.'

Speaking to CNN-IBN (read here), Nilekani said that his candidature will come at an appropriate time. "Politics needs people, who are clean, local and competent. People want someone with a clean face. I will provide that," he said.

He added that he knew the basics of urban governance and that the city needed a real ambassador who will fight for the cause.

Though there has been no formal announcement on his candidature, rumours are rife that he will be contesting on a Congress ticket. Nilekani has already begun the election campaign in Bangalore. "If I am given the ticket, I will contest rom Bangalore South," he said.

Nilekani has heated up the battleground with his rigorous campaigning in the city. If he gets a ticket to contest the Lok Sabha elections he'll be pitted against BJP's Ananth Kumar from Bangalore South.
