Candidates who splurge money can't remain honest

“How can you expect a candidate who spends up to Rs.5 crore to get elected to the Assembly to remain honest and sincere and fight against corruption?” Posing this question at a media conference, Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan today told all thinking people in the State that no purpose would be served if they merely grumbled in silence over the rotten and corrupt politics. “All those who love their country and concerned about the future of their children and with leadership qualities should plunge into politics and cleanse the system. Don’t we have a few hundred people in the eight crore population who could fight for justice? Please shed your silence and use the platform provided by the Lok Satta. Realize in your own interest that the silence of good people is more harmful than the evil deeds of bad people. Please stand, fight and be counted.”
