Lok Satta Party State Working President D. V. V. S. Varma today appealed to youth and all those who have shunned politics marked by dynastic and family rule and money power to utilize the Lok Satta as a platform for transforming society.

Addressing a gathering at the party headquarters to mark the celebration of Gandhi jayanthi and the party’s fifth anniversary, Mr. Varma said that Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan had decided to quit as State party President to create room for new forces to lead the party.

Mr. Varma unfurled the national flag, and Mr. V. Laxman Balaji, General Secretary, the party flag. Earlier, party leaders paid floral tributes to Mahatma Gandhi and Lal Bahadur Shastry on their birth anniversary.

Mr. Varma said that in contrast to traditional parties most of which have run money-based politics, the Lok Satta Party is committed to people-centered politics. The Lok Satta has survived as a party because it is fulfilling a historic necessity, he added. With the party spreading its influence in a number of States, Dr. JP would lead it at the national level.

In a pledge administered by Mr. Katari Srinivasa Rao, General Secretary, party workers said they would launch a second freedom movement on Gandhian lines to usher in good governance.
