Let us all work together to transform politics: Dr. JP

Lok Satta Party national President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan today welcomed the Republic Day pledge of Mr. N. Chandrababu Naidu, TDP President and former Chief Minister, to eradicate corruption by enacting a new law and constituting fast track courts.

In a media statement, Dr. JP recalled that the Lok Satta right from its inception has been arguing for clean politics, a strong and independent anti corruption mechanism, effective and non-partisan policing and speedy justice. The Lok Satta Party had drafted and circulated a Bill among all political parties providing for the constitution of a strong and independent Lokayukta at the State level and ombudsmen in districts, autonomy to the ACB, constitution of special courts etc. It had played a key role in the enactment of the Gram Nyayalaya Bill. It has been actively working for constitution of a National Judicial Commission and Indian Judicial Service.

“It is time all political parties realized that the present day politics based on vote buying, short-term sops to voters without eliminating poverty and politics of division has reached a dead-end. Unless all of us work together to transform politics, there is the danger of the economy stagnating, people losing faith in governments and politics and the society getting sucked into a spiral of violence, mistrust and lawlessness.”

Underlining that the case for better politics has never been greater than today, Dr. JP appealed to all political parties to come together and usher in much needed reforms in politics, governance and economy and restore public confidence in politics and governance.

Dr. JP said the Lok Satta is ready to work with all groups and parties to realize these goals.
