The growth prospects of the Lok Satta Party are bright because of its adherence to certain values and policies, said its party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan here today. Parties bereft of values and policies, despite of their money and muscle power are disintegrating in front of our eyes, Dr. JP told a meeting of party leaders in the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation.

 

Dr. JP referred to the flux in all political parties right from the village level and said the Lok Satta had to utilize the opportunity to attract more people and strengthen itself at the grassroots.

 

Dr. JP said that although the Lok Satta enjoyed credibility and popularity all over, it could not make the grade in elections because of organizational weakness. The party should grow from the village level onwards in the next three years and a half and face the 2014 general elections.

 

The Lok Satta Party, he underlined, does not view any party as untouchable and is prepared to work with all on the basis of broad policies. The time is not ripe for broaching electoral alliances, he added.

 

Dr. JP suggested that the party mobilize people on issues like eradication of corruption, empowerment of local governments and plight of villagers.

 

Mr. D. V. V. S. Varma, party Working President, took part in the meeting.
