Mr. Reddi Lakshmu Naidu, Lok Satta Party leader of Cheepurupalli, called off his indefinite fast today following intervention of Lok Satta Party’s national President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan.

Mr. Lakshmu Naidu had begun his fast on February 12 to protest the attack on Dr. JP at Andhra Bhavan in New Delhi the previous day by some Telangana lawyers.

Learning of Mr. Lakshmu Naidu’s deteriorating health, Dr. JP who was interacting with workers in the unorganized sector at Chandanagar here, called him up over phone and advised him to give up the fast. There is no point in young people staking their health on the issue since the law will take care of miscreants who attacked him, Dr. JP told Mr. Lakshmu Naidu. Instead, he should focus on the lofty goals of the party, Dr. JP added.

Following Dr. JP’s instructions to North Coastal Andhra party leader Bhisetty Babji, Vizianagaram district unit leaders D. Sai Parthasaradhi, Chintalapudi and Appala Raju visited Cheepurupalli and made Mr. Lakshmu Naidu end his fast.
