JP Goes Pro Telangana tune for Parkal byelection

Lok Satta Party president Dr Jayaprakash Narayan on Monday called upon the party leaders from Telangana to make it clear to people that the party is in favor of a Telangana State emerging as part of a comprehensive and amicable solution.

Apparently shedding his tentative attitude on the Telangana statehood demand, JP said people’s aspirations cannot be ignored for long in a democracy. “Our party alone has clear-cut policies for the region’s all-round development,” he said, while addressing senior party leaders from 10 Telangana districts at the party headquarters.

JP advised them to strengthen the party and enlighten people on the party’s agenda for Telangana development. The party agenda includes eradication of corruption, decentralization of power, making farming remunerative, restricting liquor consumption, integrated water resources utilization and development of small towns.

He asked them to tour Telangana districts extensively without losing time to strengthen the party. Since the party has already decided to contest from Parakala in the by-election to the Assembly, it should utilize the opportunity to spread its agenda.
