Overwhelming response to Dr. JP's phone-in

The just democratically elected Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan was flooded with calls when he conducted a 14-hour non-stop phone-in program from the party headquarters here on Sunday.

The callers from all over Andhra Pradesh and a few from Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru and the U. S. and the U. K. congratulated the Lok Satta on its efforts to transform political culture and pledged their support.

The callers wanted the Lok Satta to think twice before entering into an alliance with any political party. They suggested that it should not enter into an alliance for the sake of winning a few seats. Policy-based, limited alliances could, however, be considered.

More than 1200 people had dialed the Lok Satta headquarters to speak to Dr. JP. He responded patiently to 300 people, explaining the party’s policies and welcoming their suggestions.

The State Working Committee of the Lok Satta would be meeting tomorrow to discuss the party’s program to unveil district governments on January 23. The meeting, to be attended by the newly elected district presidents also, would evaluate the latest political situation in the State and the prospects of the party fielding its candidates in the general elections in Maharashtra.
