Brahmins seek Lok Satta tickets


Representatives of the Federation of Brahmin Associations have requested Lok Satta Party national President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan to give due representation to Brahmins in selection of candidates for contesting the upcoming general elections.

The representatives, led by federation Convener Dornala Krishna Murthy, pointed out that Brahmins who contributed to good governance with their talent and erudition for centuries have lost their importance these days for various reasons. Since there cannot be genuine democracy without Brahmins’ participation in the political system, due representation should be given to them for contesting elections.

Responding to their plea for grant of party tickets to contest for MLA and MP seats, Dr. JP said the Lok Satta is committed to the growth of all sections and it is not anybody’s property. The party will provide due representation to all leaders with commitment and competence.

Lok Satta Party leaders Bandaru Ramamohan Rao and Mrs. Gita Murty took part in the meeting at the party headquarters.
