NRI campaign for Lok Satta

Around 30 Lok Satta supporters in the U. S. made calls to 3000 households in the Tekkali Assembly constituency appealing to them to vote for the Lok Satta in the by-elections.

Their message is that while traditional parties are trying to influence voters with short-term benefits or benefit from the sympathy wave, they are utilizing the opportunity to spread Lok Satta policies as in the 2009 general elections.

Mr. Sai Tej Kambampati, an industrial Engineer, who spent six hours tele-campaiging one night, says that everything is not about winning elections. Their aim is to take the Lok Satta closer to people.

Mr. Ramgopal Madarapu, a software engineer, who has been calling twenty people a day, says that calling a few thousand people of the one lakh voters took them around 200 man hours.
