Lok Satta candidate of Repalle passes away

The Lok Satta Party today expressed is profound grief over the death of Mr. Tummala Satyanarayana Choudary (59) its candidate contesting the election to the Repalle Assembly constituency.

Although he hailed from a family of freedom fighters, he had kept himself off politics. But he joined the Lok Satta Party a few months ago, drawn by its ideals. It was distressing that he died of a heart attack even as he led the party towards victory, said Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan here today.

Dr. JP pointed out that since the Lok Satta Party is not recognized as a party, the election in the Repalle constituency will take place. He wanted the voters to vote for the whistle, although the candidate is no more as a mark of respect to the deceased leader and protest against traditional party politics.
