People for Lok Satta, an NRI organization backing the Lok Satta Party, described the 2009 elections in Andhra Pradesh as a moral victory for the party in that lakhs of people voted for it spurning inducements like money, liquor and freebies offered by the three traditional parties and ignoring the malicious propaganda that a vote for the new party would be a wasted vote.
The organization comprising NRIs in the U.S., Canada, Britain, Switzerland, Australia and New Zealand, campaigned for the party through phone calls and SMS.
It noted that the Lok Satta Party had struck roots in urban areas although it could not make an impact in rural areas. It pledged itself to replicate Kukatpally, from which party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan was elected to the Assembly, all over the country in the days to come. The NRIs would do their best to create a society in which every one transcending caste and religion, region and language had equal opportunities for growth, said Messrs Satya Suresh Donepudi, Kranthi Gaddam, Prasad Gattu in a statement released through the Lok Satta Party headquarters here.
