Dr.JP welcomes Hazare’s call for new Platform to transform politics


Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan today welcomed Anna Hazare’s call for formation of a new political formation to transform India.

In a media statement, Dr. JP recalled that the Lok Satta Party right from its inception has maintained that Indian cannot do with 19th century politics in the 21st century economy. Political parties should be instruments for people’s participation. Since the present political parties do not have any inclination to transform themselves, there is the need for a new political platform for the new generation.

“The need of the hour is not to shun politics or revile politics. It is to respect politics and improve politics. The antidote to corrupt politics is more politics and better politics. The best and the brightest in society should embrace politics as a noble endeavor. The Lok Satta Party in Andhra Pradesh and some neighboring States has already emerged as a platform for all citizens keen on transforming politics.”
