Lok Satta launching 'Surajya' movement

Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan will be flagging off the party’s ‘surajya’ movement in municipalities all over the State by addressing a meeting in Chandanagar division of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation on September 20.

Talking to the media, party spokespersons Katari Srinivasa Rao and Mrs. Y. Ramadevi said that the party proposed to launch the movement in one division or ward of every municipality demanding formation of people-elected government in every division/ward so that people get the services they need.

Dr. JP will be holding an interactive session with people drawn from all fields at the HUDA Colony grounds in Chandanagar at 4-00 p.m. on September 20 to ascertain the problems of people in all the six divisions of the Serilingampalli Assembly constituency and explain how they could be resolved with their tax remittances. An exhibition on people’s problems and possible solutions will be held at the venue.

The Lok Satta has been demanding that the Government make a per capita grant of Rs.1000 to every municipality and panchayat so that locally elected people’s committees could resolve people’s problems with the grant.

The first phase of the movement will be carried on until December 9, International Anti Corruption Day.

The Lok Satta leaders demanded that the Government take stringent measures like strengthening laws to prevent atrocities against women against the backdrop of the attack by a love-stricken boy on a girl and her parents in Rajahmundry. Such incidents mirrored the failure of the Government as also our society in safeguarding women.
