HYDERABAD: The Lok Satta Party will be launching a five-day campaign to persuade the government to adopt an amendment to the Prevention of Corruption Act in the Budget session of the Assembly beginning July 24.

The Bill aims at bringing all elected people, including MLAs and MLCs, under the purview of anti-corruption law and plugging all loopholes.

As part of the campaign, people will be persuaded to write post cards to the Chief Minister seeking a change in the law, a press note informed.

Party spokesmen Katari Srinivasa Rao and V. Laxman Balaji dismissed the allegations made by certain district leaders as baseless and added that a malicious campaign was being run against it on the eve of the GHMC elections by people who were threatened by the party’s growth.
