Lok Satta to contest elections in Maharashtra

The Lok Satta Party will be contesting the elections to the Maharashtra Assembly scheduled for October.

Talking to the media, Lok Satta Party leaders Katari Srinivasa Rao, V. Laxman Balaji and Mrs. S. Manorama said the Mharahashtra unit had announced that a Professor of Social Work, Dr. Jalinder Adsule, will be contesting from Vandre (East) in Mumbai. Dr. Adsule has been active in social work for more than three decades.

According to Mr. Surendra Srivatsava, Maharashtra Lok Satta Party President, the party will field educated candidates with integrity and leadership qualities from a number of constituencies. The Lok Satta aims at providing an alternative to traditional parties with which people are fed up. Hitherto, the educated and the middle classes had chosen not to vote in elections, leave alone contesting them. The Lok Satta is now providing them a forum to enable such people to take part in elections and usher in a new era in politics, said the Lok Satta leaders.
