Decentralization need of the Hour: DVVS Varma

Politics and administration should revolve round making every child realize its true potential and not on making people dependent on the Government for the sops it throws at them, said Lok Satta Party Working President D. V. V. S. Varma here today.

Addressing a gathering after unfurling the National Flag at the party headquarters on Independence Day, Mr. Varma said the objective could be realized if people worked collectively.

Although the country has registered considerable progress since Independence, it falls far short of its potential, said Mr. Varma. By focusing on sops and subsidies, traditional political parties have been stifling people’s urge to come up in life on their own. Thanks to centralization of power, one has to look up to Hyderabad or Delhi for solutions to problems in rural areas. Empowerment of citizens through decentralization will promote good governance he added.

Party leaders Katari Srinivasa Rao, V. Laxman Balaji, P. Bhaskara Rao, S. Manorama, M. Satyanarayana and P. Sivaji took part in the program.
