Lok Satta decries vilification campaign

The Lok Satta Party today appealed to the Bengaluru electorate not to be misled by the vilification campaign the BJP and other parties are indulging against it.

In a media statement, Lok Satta leaders Katari Srinivasa Rao and Mrs. K. Rama Lakshmi said that not reconciled to the Lok Satta earning people’s support by contesting five seats in the Bengaluru Municipal Corporation elections, its opponents were threatening the party contestants, lodging false complaints with police, disrupting is meetings, and spreading baseless rumors of Lok Satta candidates dropping out of the race.

The age-old trick employed by Lok Satta opponents is to accuse it of being in the race merely to benefit either the Congress or the BJP.

Mr. Katari Srinivasa Rao and Mrs. Rama Lakshmi pointed out that the Lok Satta Party is the only party in the country which has openly stuck to the policy of not luring voters with any inducements like liquor and money. The party is contesting the elections as part of its drive to transform the political system in the country and not to help either the BJP or the Congress.

They hoped the intelligent Bengaluru voters would not be carried away by its opponents’ malicious propaganda.
