Congratulating Mr. Pranab Mukherjee on his election as President of India, Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan hoped that he would defend and protect the Constitution and render justice to all sections of people. He was confident that Mr. Pranab Mukherjee, despite his four decade-long association with a political party, would transcend political affiliation and represent the entire nation.

In a media statement, Dr. JP said that if the country were to overcome the serious challenges it is facing now, reforms in the electoral and political systems and decentralization of power are imperative.

Although the President of India enjoys only limited Constitutional powers, Dr. JP hoped, Mr. Pranab Mukherjee would use his stature, vast experience and good relations with all parties to build a consensus on key reforms and take the country forward.
