Lok Satta to render justice to Downtrodden in elections

The Lok Satta Party will fight the ensuing general elections on the agenda of poverty eradication, corruption-free politics and justice to all sections in society.

The Core Committee of the party, which met here today with Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan in the chair, felt that the task before the party was translating its credibility into votes. "Its 50 irrevocable guarantees and internal democratic elections by secret ballot have become the talk of the day."

Briefing the media on the meeting, party spokesmen Katari Srinivasa Rao and P. Ravi Maruth said the Core Committee had decided to render justice to downtrodden sections in elections by fielding them in large numbers. "If candidates with the qualities of competence, leadership and integrity are available, the party is prepared to field them even in excess of their community’s share in the population."

The Core Committee welcomed Praja Rajyam President’s declaration against distribution of money and liquor in elections.
