Jayaprakash Narayan appeals to people to fight corrupt politics
‘Rice scheme is impractical and aimed at hoodwinking people’
Autonomy for police, ACB and CID favoured for fair trial of cases
WARANGAL: Lok Satta Party president N. Jayaprakash Narayan has called upon people to take part in the ‘Surajya’ movement launched by his party and fight to end the corrupt politics and misrule in the State.
Launching the ‘Surajya’ movement here on Saturday, Mr. Narayan said politics in the State had reached the lowest ebb and the recent debate in the Assembly dispelled the notion of people about good governance.
Society could not bear these criminals and corrupt politics any more and hence, there was a need for a movement to drive them out of governance.
The people should reject corrupt people from politics and pave the way for good governance.
The Lok Satta Party asked the government set up special courts in each district to probe and try the politicians who resorted to corrupt practices and amassed disproportionate assets at the cost of public welfare.
“Corruption is more heinous and dangerous than a murder. Should people continue to be unmindful of these criminals and their acts? Should we continue to allow them to rule us?”
Mr. Narayan said Lok Satta Party had decided to organise protest rallies and demonstrations across the State on April 9 at all district headquarters.
He urged the people to participate in large numbers and make the programme successful.
He found fault with the new public welfare schemes and promises being showered by both -- the ruling and opposition parties. The schemes only turned the people into beggars rather empowering them economically and socially.
All that people wanted was quality education and health care first. On Rs. 2-a-kg-rice scheme, Mr. Narayan said it was impractical and aimed at hoodwinking the people. “The ration cards are more in number compared to total number of families in the State.
“It is purely aimed at gaining mileage in the ensuing elections,” he contended.
The Lok Satta Party president favoured autonomy for the police, Anti-Corruption Bureau and Crime Investigation Department for a free and fair trial of cases.
