The Lok Satta Party is ready to give tickets to contest elections and offer positions within the organization to all sincere and competent people irrespective of their caste, religion, region and economic status.

Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan gave this assurance to a delegation of Akhila Brahmin Rajakiya Samithi (ABRS), Andhra Pradesh, which called on him seeking five percent representation to Brahmins in Lok Satta party tickets and positions commensurate with their population.

Dr. JP said that the Lok Satta is the only party which has fielded common people as its candidates in elections without looking into their dynastic or financial credentials. Brahmins with leadership qualities and a willingness to shoulder responsibilities will have bright prospects in the Lok Satta Party.

Dr. JP pointed out that traditional parties are fuelling hatred among different castes in the name of reservations for partisan ends. The Lok Satta Party in contrast is trying to promote a reservation policy which benefits downtrodden sections as also the poor in forward castes including Brahmins. That is why the Lok Satta has proposed that poor students drawn from rural and urban areas be given bonus marks in competitive examinations.

Dr. JP counseled the Brahmin leaders that they should strive to transform the nature of politics by making education its center point.

Mr. Muralidhar Deshpande, Mrs. M. Kalpavalli and Mrs. M. Mahalakshmi were among ABRS leaders who submitted the representation to Dr. JP.
