Bengaluru floods: BJP leader goes after Mohandas Pai, IT firms

BJP leader N R Ramesh on Wednesday wrote an open letter lambasting former Infosys director TV Mohandas Pai for 'defaming' Bengaluru and claimed that IT companies themselves had contributed to the city's woes by encroaching upon stormwater drains.

Ramesh's 5-page letter came a day after the government held a meeting with IT companies on improving the city's infrastructure.

Ramesh, the Bengaluru South BJP president, accused Pai of 'forgetting the truth' while taking a dig at the IT veteran's 'Save Bengaluru' campaign in the wake of the flood situation.

Pai shot back saying he has every right as a citizen to demand good governance.
