Lok Satta teams to campaign in Tekkali

The Lok Satta Party has formed a high-level committee comprising Mr. DVVS Varma and Mr. Bhisetty Babji to steer the party campaign in the Tekkali byelection. Teams functioning under them will be meeting educated people, women, employees and workers with a view to seeking their support for the party. In addition, a 15-member youth team under the leadership of Yuva Satta convener Dasari Ratnam will be going round the constituency.

Party spokesmen Katari Srinivasa Rao and Mr. V. Laxman Balaji told the media that the party leaders were on their way to Tekkali to step up the campaign. The party would tell voters that a vote to any traditional party would not transform their lives since all of them pursued the same policies. Only the Lok Satta was committed to ensuring equal growth opportunities to every child, irrespective of its caste and religion.

Meanwhile, top leadership of the party is engaged in reconstituting district committees by holding discussions with tentatively chosen candidates from different districts at the party headquarters.


  1. Please consider that Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan's visit to Tekkali will be quite effective and is probably even needed/expected! We can double the number of MLAs if we win this seat!!

  2. JP should visit villages and meet farmers explainging the LSP ideology on Agriculture.

  3. Dear JP Sir,

    I was a bit disheartened to see people other than you leading the campaign for the Tekkali by-election. Though we understand your compulsions (especially when the assembly sessions are in progress), in the larger interests of people of this state, we feel you must allocate some time and lead from the front. This by-election is a blessing for us since we've aptly proved that we are thought leaders and not followers as TDP and PRP who backed out on their words on not contesting. I, like most of our sincere volunteers, am cursing my inability to campaign elsewhere in the state due to various limitations. I think this is a great opportunity for us to prove what we are capable of achieving and achieve what we deserve. A good vote share, if not a win, would give this movement much needed traction that we so badly require.

    Best Wishes
