IITians make a political party

Yes yes, I know many of you have read it already, but here goes:

Many sources reported today that a bunch of IIT graduates have formed a political party, having left their lucrative jobs.

Nice to know about that, lets see how far this goes. It will be interesting to see how they can maintain "quality" while growing in size.

From the article:

“People think we are crazy so much so that our families have also failed to understand our motto, but we won’t give up,’’ he added.
The core team of “Paritrana’ ’ comprises Rajpurohit , Shukla, Amit Beesen, also the vice president and a B Tech (Mechanical) from IIT Bombay and a LLB graduate, Chandrashekhar (national treasurer), B Tech (computer science) from IIT Kanpur, Bharat Sundaram, the PRO of the party and B Tech from IIT Kanpur and PhD in electronics from Melbourne.
“Paritrana means complete relief from the various causes of distress, and that is what we want to do for our people,’’ added Chandrashekhar. Low funds have not discouraged them in their efforts of holding door-to-door campaigns in Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and parts of Maharashtra.

Kudos to you all people... maybe I shall volunteer for this party once I am back :-).
