Vote for new politics, Lok Satta Tells Tekkali voters

The Lok Satta Party today appealed to Tekkali voters to utilize the by-election to the Assembly for unveiling people-centered politics in place of family-oriented politics.

Talking to the media, party spokespersons V. Laxman Balaji and Mrs. Y. Ramadevi said politics should strive to provide equal opportunities for growth to every child irrespective of its birth in a certain caste or religion. Considering that the Lok Satta alone is working in that direction, the Tekkali voters should strengthen its hands.

The Lok Satta has fielded Mr. Chandrasekhar Patnaik, a lawyer and social worker, to contest the by-election.

The Lok Satta leaders pointed out that the outcome of the election would have no bearing on the continuance of the present Government. Therefore, the voters should evaluate how the traditional parties had been carrying on personality-based politics in the Assembly in the last 100 days and how they had succeeded in warding off meaningful discussions on people’s burning problems. In contrast, the Lok Satta, which had only a lone representative in the Assembly sought, to elevate discussions to a higher plane.

The Lok Satta appealed to all thinking people to take active interest in elections and cast their votes as otherwise money, liquor and muscle power would have a field day. They should bury the malicious campaign that a vote to the Lok Satta would be a wasted vote. There is no question of people voting for a winning party since any party could win only when they cast votes for it.
