In its bid to strengthen the party at the grassroots level and emerge as a force in the local body elections, the Lok Satta Party has constituted six teams to go round districts and hold talks with district committees, constituency in-charges and party workers.

 

Each team will visit four districts from August 9 to 13. Based on the feedback received from the teams, the State Working Committee will take measures to finalize an action plan to strengthen the party.

 

Mr. DVVS Varma, Party Vice-President and Mr. V. Laxman Balaji, party spokesman, said the party’s Working Committee, which met here yesterday with Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan in the chair, also decided to constitute a Political Affairs Committee with Mr. DVVS Varma as Chairman. The other members of the committee are: Mr. Katari Srinivasa Rao, Mrs. S. Manorama, Mr. Bhisetty A. Babji, Mr. P. Ravi Maruth, Mr. A. Iramamurthy, Mr. Y. D. Rama Rao, Mr. E. Chennayya, and Dr. K. Kondaiah.

 

The party constituted a Disciplinary Committee with Mr. V. Ramachandraiah as Chairman and Dr. Radha Devi, Mr. Chekkam Ramireddy, Mr. Jupally Satyanarayana and Mr. Bhisetty A. Babji as members. The party’s Committee on Training and Literature will be headed by Mr. DVVS Varma and comprises Mr. D. Venkata Ramana and Mrs. K. Gita Murthy as members.

 

The Working Committee at the outset paid rich tributes to Mr. Ankem Prabhakara Rao, senior leader of the party, who passed away. The Lok Satta Party demanded an impartial inquiry into the mysterious death of Armed Reserve constable P. Muralinath near Gwalior. He had been sent from Hyderabad to work as a car driver for the family of a top police official. The party also wanted the Government to immediately put an end to the ‘orderly’ system under which police officials abused constables’ services for personal purposes.
