Lok Satta to allocate 10% of GHMC Budget to divisions

Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan announced today that the party, if voted to power in the GHMC elections, would allocate 10 percent of the anticipated Rs.4500-crore budget next year for being spent in divisions by people-elected committees. In addition, the Lok Satta Party is committed to ensuring a per capita grant of Rs.1000 to every division.

The party would also establish a call center and resolve people’s problems in a time-bound manner. The complainants would be compensated at the rate of Rs.100 per day if a problem could not be attended to within the prescribed time limit.

Addressing students, business people and professionals from Sultan Bazar in the Gosha Mahal constituency who joined the Lok Satta Party, Dr, JP told them that the Lok Satta would not provide them avenues for personal enrichment by encouraging land grabbing or facilitating contracts for works. The Lok Satta provided them a platform to fight for a bigger cause.

The party President said that the Lok Satta workers would not lure voters with liquor or money. Instead, they would seek people’s patronage on the basis of its agenda including the formation of divisional governments.

Party leaders Hemant Kumar Jaiswal and C. Vinod led the delegation to the Lok Satta Party headquarters. Mrs. Y. Ramadevi and Mr. Syamraj Yadav were among those who took part in the event.
