A wind of change blowing, All over AP


Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan today congratulated voters on withstanding terrific inducements like money and liquor and major deterrents like poor publicity in the media, and voluntarily coming forward to vote for the Lok Satta in large numbers.


Addressing the media, Dr. JP said the first phase of polling in the 2009 elections witnessed a wind of change blowing all over Andhra Pradesh. “What is heartening is that youth, women, serving and retired employees in the public and private sectors and unorganized workers had taken part in the polling, many of them for the first time in many years.”


Dr. JP said that the voters have now realized that they are the architects of their own destiny and that every vote counts. They did not succumb to the poisonous propaganda that a vote to the Lok Satta would go waste. They did not mind that the Lok Satta Party and its candidates could not go in for costly advertisements camouflaged as news or that sections of the print media chose to virtually black out the party from their columns.
