IT re­seller joins AAP; may con­test elec­tions


Hari Ras­togi, CEO of Ben­galuru-based Starshine In­fotech, and Founder of We will Act— an ini­tia­tive to fight the threat posed by on­line re­tail, has joined the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). Spec­u­la­tion is that he may even con­test the up­com­ing na­tional elec­tions.

Ras­togi has moved back to his home­town Varanasi, and has de­cided to can­vass for the party dur­ing the up­com­ing elec­tions.

“The ob­jec­tive be­hind join­ing AAP is to cre­ate aware­ness about the mal­prac­tices of on­line re­tail­ers. Their preda­tory pric­ing is killing small businesses. While we have com­plained to govern­ment at var­i­ous lev­els, no in­ves­ti­ga­tion and ac­tion has been taken against the on­line re­tail­ers for their mal­prac­tices. Most of the coun­try’s prob­lems are due to ram­pant crony cap­i­tal­ism, and this ought to change,” Ras­togi opined.
