Dr. JP boards passenger bus

Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan today traveled by a bus from Balanagar Cross Roads to KPHB Colony and interacted with passengers as part of his election campaign. He bought tickets for all those who boarded the Zaheerabad-bound bus along with him. He had traveled by train on two occasions to carry the Lok Satta message to the people.

Talking to a family, which was leaving for Mumbai in search of work and livelihood, Dr. JP told them that the Lok Satta Party, if elected to power, would create 1250 towns all over the State and ensure livelihood to 50 lakh of people. Then people need not migrate to far off places.

He told college students traveling by the bus that the Lok Satta is committed to making quality education the centerpiece of its politics. The party would improve public transport and ensure that bus services are extended to all remote colonies. He appealed to passengers as also commuters at bus stops to vote for ‘whistle,’ the Lok Satta election symbol.

The bus driver, the conductor and passengers in the bus as also those waiting at bus stops were overwhelmed by Dr. JP’s off-beat electioneering. Dr. Lavu Rattaiah, the party’s Malkajigiri Lok Sabha candidate traveled with Dr. JP in the bus.
