The Makkal Shakthi Katchi (meaning party of people’s power) has decided to function as the Lok Satta Party unit in Tamil Nadu.
An eight-member delegation, comprising members of the party’s Steering Committee, called on Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan at the Lok Satta Party headquarters here and discussed modalities for taking the party forward.
Most of the one-year-old Makkal Shakthi Katchi members had been active in Makkal Shakthi Iyakkam founded by Mr. Udaya Murthy in 1988. They came out of the movement and founded the political party. They even contested in three by-elections to the Tamil Nadu Assembly in the last one year.
The delegation comprised Messrs Senthil Arumugam, Prabhakar, Uday Kumar, Shiva Shankar, Shiva Ilango, Satish, Stayaraj and Mohan.
According to Mr. Senthil, the Makkal Shakthi Katchi will hereafter be the Lok Satta’s Tamil Nadu unit.
