Lok Satta to reorganize Municipal units

The State Working Committee of the Lok Satta Party today decided to take on the traditional parties in the municipal elections scheduled for September 2010 by strengthening its leadership at the municipality level and launching a mass contact program based on people’s problems.

Giving this information at a media conference, party spokesmen Katari Srinivasa Rao and Mr. V. Laxman Balaji and party Vice President Bhisetty Babji said that the action plan envisaged reorganization of municipal party committees between August 25 and September 15, enrolment of executive members and making the party self-sufficient financially. The party would launch a door-to-door campaign on the corruption that is playing havoc with resolving people’s problems ranging from drinking water, sanitation and pollution to traffic and roads. A State-level leader will be associated with two municipalities each in these efforts. On December 9, World Anti Corruption Day, the party will launch a program throughout the State. Meanwhile, attempts will be made to associate Mahila Satta and Yuva Satta members with the Lok Satta programs.

The Lok Satta leaders disclosed the Working Committee discussed the defections being engineered by the traditional parties in the name of schemes like ‘Aakarsh’ and ‘Vikarsh’. The party felt that the two traditional parties, pursuing power-oriented politics, were mired in a crisis for want of ideological and moral foundations. Since they lacked an agenda that appealed to the public, they were trying to undermine other parties. Those who got elected by splurging money and liquor were turning to traditional parties in their bid to recoup their investments.

The goings on in the traditional parties once again underlined the need for ethics in politics and all people concerned with their future and that of the country rallying behind the Lok Satta.

Mr. DVVS Varma, Vice President, presided over the meeting before party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan took over.
