Government must unblock party website: Lok Satta Party Chief

Lok Satta Party national president Jayaprakash Narayan today accused the government of blocking the party's website through which it has received around Rs 30 lakh from the Indians living abroad.

"The flow of legitimate funds from Indian citizens abroad has resulted in the government unlawfully and abruptly shutting off our donation channel (through party's website), even as it continues to turn a blind eye to the copious flow of black money to traditional parties," Narayan said.

Demanding that the government immediately redress this injustice, he said that Lok Satta Party supporters have begun looking for an alternate way to contribute and support the party.

During the last five days, more than 1,000 volunteers joined the Lok Satta Party, he said.

Referring to the AP Re-organisation Bill-2013 presently being debated in the Andhra Pradesh Assembly, he said that his party would oppose the bill.

"We continue to oppose the Bill. This Bill imposed by the Central Government has completely ignored the consequences of bifurcation. Our stand has been consistent. We will support the Bill, if a comprehensive and amicable solution is worked out to protect the interests of all three regions of Andhra Pradesh", Narayan said.
