Lok Satta President takes up novel train journey campaigning

Says his journey aims at taking politics to the people


The Lok Satta President Jayaprakash Narayan embarked on his simple election campaign tour by boarding the Krishna Express accompanied by supporters and a clutch of media persons in contrast to the pompous campaigns of traditional parties. Lok Satta candidates of various constituencies were present in good number to cheer their leader as he explained that the objective of the train journey was to take politics to the people and address local issues wherever the train halted.

People waited to greet him at Bhongir, Aler, Kazipet and other places as the Tirupati bound Krishna Express stopped briefly at different stations. Travelling in a second class, Jayaprakash Narayan alighted at all the stops and addressed the gathering on the platform wherever time permits. The 530 km whistle stop campaign tour from Secunderabad to Nellore passed through seven districts and concluded with a public meeting at Nellore. He reiterated the party's commitment to decentralize administration and empower people by giving equal opportunities to all irrespective of caste and creed.

During his address at various places, he assured of basic amenities, schools, health care centres in every village and developing 1,000 small towns with all infrastructure facilities and employment opportunities to curb exodus of rural people to cities. He added that the people were vexed with corruption and were yearning for a clean and value based political party.
