LSP eyes NRIs to expand base

Lok Satta Party leaders Katari Srinivasa Rao and P Rohit Kumar on Thursday appealed to non-resident Indians (NRIs) in the US to lend their mite in Lok Satta’s mission to usher in new politics.

Interacting with members of People for Lok Satta in a number of cities from San Francisco on the West Coast to Washington DC on the East Coast for two weeks in July, they recalled that NRIs had played a key role in taking the U. S. forward in a number of fields.

It was high time they spared some time and effort to improve living conditions in their motherland. They are welcome to take up leadership and further the Lok Satta cause, they added.

The Lok Satta leaders took part in the TANA (Telugu Association of North America) conference at Santa Clara earlier.

Mr Srinivasa Rao and Mr Rohit Kumar explained that the Lok Satta’s 15-year-old fight against corruption was about to bear fruit with the Government of India getting ready to adopt a Lokpal Bill. The Lok Satta Party is trying to persuade political parties on the importance of instituting similar mechanisms at the State and district levels.

People for Lok Satta President Prasanna Meda recalled that PFL received tremendous response to its 240-mile ‘Dandi March II’ against corruption in March 2011. It is mobilizing NRI support to the Indian farmers’ demand for liberating agriculture from the license-permit raj.
