The Steering Committee of the Surajaya Movement has appealed to Members of the Andhra Pradesh Legislature and Members of Parliament to lend their support to the movement for good governance.

The non-partisan reforms movement launched on ‘Quit India Day’ (August 9, 2012) primarily aims at curbing corruption through an effective and empowered Lokayukta, guaranteeing citizen’s right to public services, empowering local governments for creating basic amenities at the grassroots, and guaranteeing quality health, education and opportunities for growth to enable everyone to live with dignity and self-respect.

To focus public attention on the movement’s the goals, Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan and some other members of the Steering Committee will be observing a three-day fast at Indira Park from December 5.

In a letter addressed to all legislators, Dr. JP has invited them to visit the Surajya Deeksha Vedika, meet Surajya Movement leaders, express support for the cause and reaffirm their commitment to its reform goals

“Given the non-partisan and constructive approach of the Surajya Movement, and given your role as an elected legislator for the Andhra Pradesh State, we appeal to you to take up the movement’s goals and objectives in various and appropriate forums in the coming days and weeks.

“Our freedom fighters and founding fathers made history by helping deliver ‘Swarajya’. It is time we stepped forward, stood on the right side of the unfolding history and help deliver ‘Surajya’ for our people.”

The letter was released to the media at the Somajiguda Press Club here today by members of the Surajya Steering Committee Mr. K. Madhava Rao, Mr. Rao Chelikani, Mr. DVVS Varma and Surajya Deeksha Camp Incharge Mr. Katari Srinivasa Rao.
