Elections to the Lok Satta Party’s State Working Committee will take place at the party headquarters here on Sunday, February 8. Six vice presidents, three general secretaries, five secretaries and five joint secretaries will be elected.
Giving this information, party spokesman Katari Srinivasa Rao and election supervisor J. V. Krishna Rao told the media today that the electorate comprises the newly elected district and municipal corporation presidents and secretaries, nine State Council members from each district, and members co-opted by all of them. The election results will be announced by the evening.
Mr. Srinivasa Rao urged the Government to modify the terms of the qualifications stipulated in G. O. No. 11 for recruitment and promotion of school assistants. A large number of students have graduated by opting for new and contemporary subjects whereas the G. O. refers to subjects of the British era. Unless the G. O. is amended, a large number of people will find themselves ineligible, Mr. Srinivasa Rao said.
