Rajeev Chandrasekhar is an Indian businessman and presently serves as an Independent Member of the Parliament of India, representing Karnataka and Bangalore Urban, in the Rajya Sabha.
Over the last many years Bengaluru City has seen unprecedented growth – with a consequent loss of culture, heritage and most importantly the sense of belonging in our proud and heritage-rich city. Mr Chandrasekhar strongly feels that it’s time to bring back the sense of belonging in the city and therefore would be very appropriate to recognize those in the various Government, Civic agencies, NGOs, RWAs, Corporates and citizens that have been working to keep the spirit of Bengaluru alive despite the growth challenges.
Mr Rajeev Chandrasekhar said “Namma Bengaluru Awards is way of saying Thank you to the ‘real stars’ of our city. The award will foster Civic pride and community ownership and promote a culture of excellence and strengthen the partnership between citizens and Civic agencies/NGOs/RWAS/Corporates etc. Such a partnership between citizens and all other participants in our city is key to a sustainable and strong future for our city”
