Beyond his acting career, Kaiku has also ventured into politics, contesting the 2019 parliamentary election in the Inner Manipur Lok Sabha Constituency as an independent candidate. He joined the Bharatiya Janata Party in February 2022 but left the party in 2023. In 2024, Kaiku Rajkumar has been actively involved in the Lok Sabha elections and has filed his nomination as a candidate of the Manipur People’s Party (MPP) for the Inner Manipur Parliamentary Constituency. But due to a controversy, he is contesting the election as an independent candidate. Despite the controversy, he is supported by Manipur People’s Party (MPP). This marks a significant step in his political career following his previous independent candidacy and brief association with the Bharatiya Janata Party.
