Lok Satta poser to PR
PR asked to spell out welfare policies, programmers
Chiru asked how he would rescue poor/middle classes
HYDERABAD: The Lok Satta Party on Friday ‘counselled’ the Praja Rajyam by asking it to capture people’s hearts by spelling out policies/programmes, rather than by demonstrating its strength.
In a statement, party spokesmen B. Krishna Reddy and K. Srinivasa Rao said people expected to hear from political parties as to how they proposed resolve their problems, instead of seeing a show of strength.
They were referring to the Praja Rajyam’s announcement of its leader K. Chiranjeevi’s second leg of ‘Praja Ankitha Yatra’ to cover Telangana districts.
Mr. Reddy asked Chiranjeevi to spell out how he would go to the rescue of the poor and middle classes, who were ‘crushed’ by the steep price rise and list out measures to bail out distressed farmers driven to suicide.
He asked how Praja Rajyam would tackle the menace of belt shops, which played havoc with the lives of millions.
