Lok Satta calls upon youth to transform politics

Lok Satta Party Working President D. V. V. S. Varma today called upon youth to realize their dreams and aspirations as part of the country's development.

Mr. Varma said India is blessed in many ways: Youth in the 18-35 age group account for 40 percent of the country's population; the country has immense natural and human resources and excellent climate. Yet, poverty, destitution and unemployment continue to be the country's banes, notwithstanding progress in many directions.

Mr. Varma traced the present crisis in the country to the rot in politics and asked youth to strive to transform politics even as they excel in their chosen field.

Mr. Varma was addressing media after releasing the booklet "Randi .. Rajakiyalloki', a call to enter politics by Lok Satta Party national President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan. Mr. Suresh Veluguri, a senior journalist, authored the booklet epitomizing Dr. JP's political philosophy and his counsel to youth.

Mr. Varma advised the youth not to hate politics since the remedy to bad politics lies in good politics. People of the older generation can build only a platform for the youth to realize their ambitions. The youth have to leap onto the platform and utilize it to transform politics.

Mr. P. Bhaskara Rao, Lok Satta Party State Secretary and Mr. M. Satyanarayana, President of the party's Greater Hyderabad unit, and the author Suresh called upon youth to shoulder leadership responsibilities.
