Araku MP Kothapalli Geetha launched a new political party named as “Jana Jagruthi Party” on Friday.
Kothapalli Geetha who was elected on YSRCP ticket defected to the TDP in 2017 but maintained a distance from the party unlike her fellow MPs S.P.Y.Reddy and Butta Renuka who have been participating in all the agitational programmes of the TDP.
She claimed that she was able to take up several programmes for the people without the support of any political party. Two communities were ruling the roost and women were not being allowed to grow politically. She decided to launch the Jana Jagruthi Party (JJP) for the development of all sections in society. The symbols of eight priority areas had been incorporated in the blue and white flag that had an image of an umbrella, she said launching the party flag.
Health, industry, education, IT, water, agriculture, housing and women, empowerment were the areas that would be given the top priority by the newly launched party. She added that she tendered her resignation to the Lok Sabha and the YSRCP on August 21.
