Lok Satta asks Chiru to embrace new political culture
The Lok Satta Party today told Praja Rajyam Party founder President Chiranjeevi that people's lives could not be transformed without clear-cut policies and a new political culture.
The party pointed out that even men of impeccable integrity and competence like Dr Manmohan Singh and Mr L K Advani could make only a little impact on the political system or the lives of people because they had to work amidst corrupt political culture, a press release here said.
Commenting on Mr Chiranjeevi's appeal to people to give him a chance so that he could change people's lives, party spokesmen Katari Srinivasa Rao and B Krishna Reddy said a mere change of players without a change in the rules of the game would be of little importance. A party could usher in new political culture only when it builds itself as a people-oriented and not a family-centered institution.
It is transparent in collection and utilisation of funds and does not admit criminal elements and abstains from vote buying with money and liquor, they claimed. The PRP should aim at ensuring quality education and healthcare and job opportunities to all, irrespective of caste and religion, and not for a selected few in the name of social justice, it added.
