ఉత్తరాంధ్రలో దీర్ఘకాలిక పునర్నిర్మాణ కార్యక్రమాలకు లోక్ సత్తా సహాయనిధికి విరివిగా విరాళాలివ్వండి: జేపీ విజ్ఞప్తి
We saw the devastation caused by Hudhud in Visakhapatnam and Uttara Andhra. We cannot measure the loss it meant to lakhs of our brothers and sisters. Government will do everything it can. All of us should also contribute in the relief and rebuilding efforts. While Government focuses on providing advance warnings and relief, effective long term rehabilitation for the families is much more difficult.
In 2009, during the floods in river Krishna, Loksatta Party had adopted select villages in Kurnool, Mehboobnagar, Krishna and Guntur and implemented projects in consultation with local residents that contributed to long term rehabilitation that you can see even today - thousands of families found livelihood.
We would like to do the same again, now. Whatever we do now must have an impact for a long term.
I appeal to everyone to donate to Loksatta Flood Relief fund to help put long terms solutions in place. I assure you that every rupee donated will be put to good use and will reach those affected.
I express my deep sympathy to all those effected by Hudhud and on behalf of everyone at Loksatta Party, we will stand by you and support you in every possible way.

With warm regards,
Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan,
National President, Loksatta Party
Friday, October 17, 2014
As many of you are aware, Dr.Jayaprakash Narayan, expressed his desire to demit his office as National President of Loksatta Party, to enable him to focus on policy reform and nation building. At the request of the National Council, he has agreed to continue as National Chairman in an advisory role. Dr.Jayaprakash requested the party to initiate a process to elect a new National President, and said that we should set an example in leadership transition, and establish that political party is a collective public trust.
A committee under the leadership of Sri Ashwin Mahesh from Bangalore was constituted to select a new National President. As part of a consultative process to ascertain the views of various state units, Sri Surendra Srivastava, a life member of the party from Maharashtra visited Guntur and held a wide ranging interaction with members of the AP Loksatta Party state working committee, and other core members including Katari Srinivasa Rao, a member of the National Council.
The state working committee members communicated to Sri Srivastava, that as the founder state unit, and the largest constituent member of the party, the AP state unit has a moral responsibility to ensure that the basic structure and ideals of the party are protected, and nothing should be done for short term political expediency.
Further to the interaction, the AP State Working Committee has resolved as following:
- As the current National Council was formed on an adhoc basis, it must be dissolved immediately and a new National Council must be constituted at the earliest with representation from all state units in proportion to their membership strength.
- Election of a new national leadership must be taken up only after a new National Council is constituted in a representative and proportional manner to ensure legitimacy.
- The new National Council must institute appropriate rules and policies to govern the party in a decentralized and federal manner after ascertaining the views of all member state units.
- The new National Council must hold internal elections at all levels by March 2015.
- The primary goal of the party i.e. to usher a new political culture must be protected at all costs.
