Hyderabad, August 15 (INN): Lok Satta Party State President Katari Srinivasa Rao on Thursday called upon youth to get excited over ushering in surajya (good governance) instead of Andhra and Telangana States. They should try to become a part of the solution and not the problem by thinking clearly and observing restraint.
Addressing a gathering after unfurling the national flag at the party headquarters on the occasion of Independence Day, Srinivasa Rao pointed out that the country is mired in a crisis today because of failure to carry out economic reforms at a fast pace, decentralize administration and eradicate corruption. As a result, large sections of people have not reaped the fruits of development.
Srinivasa Rao underlined the need for providing quality education and growth opportunities to all by drawing attention to the day’s spectacle of a section of well-dressed students sporting tricolors and another in ragged clothes hawking national flags at street corners.
Srinivasa Rao said that in contrast to traditional parties, the Lok Satta viewed every problem objectively from a national angle. It is seeking a comprehensive and amicable solution to the crisis plaguing the State now. He said that Hyderabad belongs to all, not merely those from Telangana, Rayalaseema and Coastal Andhra but also from other parts of the country. A large number of people in the city repose faith in Lok Satta’s alternative political culture.
Lok Satta Party state Vice President D. V. V. S. Varma addressed the gathering. Among party leaders who took part in the event were N Saroja Devi, Bandaru Rammohan Rao, Eeda Chennayya and Dosapati Ramu.
