Neeraj Patil, who is in his late 40s, is a Consultant in Accident and Emergency Medicine and a former Mayor of the London Borough of Lambeth. He was born and brought up in Gulbarga in Karnataka.

MP for Croydon North and Shadow Local Government Minister Steve Reed launched Patil's campaign from Bangalore Street located in Putney constituency of London. The Bangalore Street is located in the London borough of Wandsworth, which has three Parliamentary constituencies, Putney, Battersea and Tooting.
