Power-oriented alliances won’t Help public: Lok Satta

The Lok Satta Party today commented that the proposed alliance or merger between the Praja Rajyam and the Congress was an internal matter of those parties.

Talking to media personnel who met them, party leaders G. Raja Reddy and V. Vijayender Reddy said that political realignments revolving round power and not policies, however, would not serve the public. It was tragic that traditional political parties did not focus on fulfilling their election-eve pledges or addressing people’s pressing problems, Instead, they reveled in the old political game of enthroning or dethroning somebody.

The Lok Satta leaders appealed to all parties to adopt amendments to the Prevention of Corruption Act proposed by their party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan in the Budget session of the Legislature. The amendment assumes importance in the context of elected representatives hurling charges of corruption against each other and against top officials. The Bill provides for swift inquiry into corruption cases and exemplary punishment, including forfeiture of ill-gotten wealth, of the guilty.
