Can clean politics ever succeed in bringing about a paradigm change in governance?

That is the subject matter of a brain-storming session the Lok Satta Party and other citizen groups are organizing in Mumbai on Sunday, March 18.

It may be recalled that Lok Satta Party fielded its candidates in the recent Brihan Mumbai Corporation elections.

Representatives of citizen groups including the Mumbai Nagrik Manch, Mumbai Nagriksatta and Lok Satta Party will take part in the two-hour session to review their election performance and chalk out the future course of action.

Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan will be delivering the keynote address on 'Clean politics and future of political intervention,' and interact with participants.

The event is being held at Shri Chandulal Nanavati School in Vile Parle.

On March 17, Dr. JP addressed a group of professionals on the imperative of young people involving themselves in 21st century politics. Teach for India, an NGO, organized the program.
