Seems like Mani Rathnamâ€™s Yuva is getting off the reels. Five IITians, all in their 20s, have decided to take up mainstream politics. The youths, based in Jodhpur, will be in the city to campaign for their national party, â€œ Paritranaâ€™â€™ , which was launched in Jodhpur on Friday.
â€œGiving up handsome pay packages, comfort of family and support of friends wasnâ€™t that easy,â€™â€™ says Tanmay Rajpurohit, the national president of the party and B Tech in aerospace from IIT Bombay followed by an MS from GeorgiaTech and double masters in arts.
â€œBut my inner voice told me that I should invest my efforts in my country rather than making my pockets heavier,â€™â€™ said Ajit Ashwalayan Shukla, vice president of the party.
