Conveying his greetings and good wishes to all Telugu-speaking people on the eve of the Telugu New Year, Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan said nature’s fury, man’s folly, and social strife marked the year gone by. For any society to prosper there should be nature’s bounty, social harmony, economic opportunities for all, and a Government free from corruption and exploitation.

“Let us put an end to corruption, restore sanity to public life, preserve and promote unity in our society and create opportunities for all in the New Year.

“The triumph of Indian cricket after decades of wait demonstrates what we can accomplish if we work with unity, dedication and a sense of purpose. Our children ask us of no more and they deserve no less.

“We should build a strong and independent institution to fight corruption and mechanisms to empower people in the New Year.”

In this context, Dr. JP pointed out that the latest Census brought the happy tiding that population growth in Andhra Pradesh is one of the lowest, and the sad news that our literacy levels are among the lowest in the country.

“Let quality education, good health and livelihood skills be our mantras for lifting people out of poverty in the New Year.”
