Indian CEOs Who Entered Politics

Rajeev Chandrasekhar is a businessman and presently serves as an Independent member of the Parliament of India representing Karnataka and Bangalore Urban in the Rajya Sabha. 

He is the Founder and Managing Trustee of RC Foundation which is mainly focused on programmes aimed at primary education for poor children and has been at the forefront of raising finances and resources for important causes like support for Tsunami affected people, Kargil war and defense personnel, training of tribal's in Kalahandi region of Orissa and rehabilitation of children impacted by the tragic burning of school in Kumbakonam in Tamil Nadu.

In 2006, a year after exiting his telecom venture BPL Mobile, Chandrasekhar was elected as an independent MP from Karnataka, with support from both the BJP and the Janata Dal (Secular), which was in an alliance back then in the state.
