Electoral politics and honestly do not go hand in hand, yet this engineering graduate is trying his luck at it. As the elections are getting near, an engineering graduate felt the need to have a campaign for clean politics. Akhil K Gowda said the political scenario is changing to religion-based and caste-based politics. Urging to stop dirty politics, and to create awareness about the need for the right kind of politics for the betterment of the country, Akhil K Gowda has taken out a 3,000 km cycle campaign rally, with the motto ‘vote for clean politics’.
Akhil, completed his engineering degree in electrical and electronics from the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Mysuru.
