The Lok Satta Party today called upon Andhra Pradesh voters to teach a lesson to traditional parties which have forfeited their right to rule the State.

Unable to resolve their internal crisis on the Telangana issue, these parties have turned the State into a cauldron by fueling animosities among people of different regions, said State Lok Satta Party Vice President D. V. V. S. Varma and General Secretary Ravi Maruth.

They told a media conference here that the State will fall from the frying pan into fire if people were to entrust them with power once again.

With elections round the corner, leaders of different parties are trying to save their skin by jumping out of sinking boats. Their single point program is getting re-elected in the upcoming elections and it has nothing to do with any principles.

Mr. Varma and Mr. Maruth pointed out that the traditional parties have been playing with the lives of people for the last three years. With administration at a standstill, people’s problems are going unattended. They are forced to drink unsafe water, going by samples collected by Lok Satta volunteers all over the State. Industrial production has suffered a setback even as 26 lakh educated unemployed are looking for jobs.

The Lok Satta leaders appealed to people to elect those who are wedded to ethical politics and capable of providing good governance and not those who are jumping ships to safeguard their positions.

In reply to a question, Mr. Ravi Maruth said that the Lok Satta worked for the success of the Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi elections since they shared common goals. It does not view AAP as a rival.

Lok Satta leaders Eeda Chennaiah and Nandipet Ravinder took part in the media conference.
