Countdown for Clean Politics in Tamil Nadu!

Elections in Tamil Nadu… Mega scams, blatant corruption, nepotism and family rule. A tsunami of freebies…utterly shameless bribing of voters in the name of poll promises. Money-and-muscle power politics in the State: now ‘certified’ by Wiki leaks itself! Don’t we deserve better than all these?

Lok Satta Party (LSP) is contesting elections in Tamil Nadu. Known also as Makkal Sakthi (‘People Power’) in this southern State, it stands for clean & honest politics, curbing corruption (remember the famous Zero-Rupee Note campaign?) and government that actually works for the citizens. More than 50 eminent citizens are contesting elections on behalf of the party as people’s candidates. A number of reputed voluntary organizations fighting against corruption and reforms groups led by eminent citizens too have joined this landmark effort.

  1. I feel this information has come little late. Still its worth working towards the direction. If the party's vision is "to keep the politics clean" (though its not so easy to do that) at least to come extent it will be nice to see the learned, and clean and young get into the field.
    I will support.
