Loksatta Founder President Dr Jayaprakash Narayan, National President Surendra Srivastava and National General Secretary Ms Hyma Potineni addressed the media today regarding party organizational matters and recent developments.
Loksatta Party National President Surendra Srivastava, National General Secretary Ms. Hyma Potineni along with Founder of Loksatta, Dr.Jayaprakash Narayan addressed media in Hyderabad today.
The Loksatta Party has congratulated the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and its chief, Arvind Kejriwal, on their unprecedented victory in the Delhi assembly election. AAP won 67 out of 70 seats, leaving the BJP just three.
The historic win is a sign that the citizen-centric politics pioneered by LSP over the past decade have been accepted and embraced by voters in the capital, party president Surendra Srivastava said. AAP has been given a second chance to make good governance and transparency the norm in politics, he said.
The State Information Commission in Tamil Nadu is functioning in a very inefficient manner. So many petitions which were appealed by the Loksatta Party to the Commission have been delayed and were unjustly rejected.
Also the commission is neither levying any fines nor recommending any departmental action against errant Information officers. Because of this the Information authorities do not take the Information request petitions seriously and tend to impose exorbitant delays on the petitions and neglect them. This attitude of the SIC is against the spirit of the RTI act.
Loksatta Party leaders Mr. Jagadheeswaran and Mr. Jaiganesh will start the Phase two of their Bike Yatra from tomorrow (03-2-2014). They will cover Cuddalore, Perambalur, Ariyalur and Trichy districts in Phase two of their journey.
They have already completed their Yatra in Tiruvallur, Kanchipuram and Vizhuppuram districts.
This Yatra is aimed at spreading awareness about ‘Right To Services’ act and
to demand a strong Lok Ayukta in Tamil Nadu.
