The Lok Satta Party today appealed to all parties to transcend their political differences and strive for an amicable settlement to the Babli project issue.

 

Addressing the media, Lok Satta Party Working President D. V. V. S. Varma appealed to the Chief Minister to convene an all-party meeting before he led a delegation to the Prime Minister. An attempt should be made to arrive at a political settlement outside the court, he said. Meanwhile, parties should put an end to slinging mud at each other and rousing regional passions.

 

Mr. Varma congratulated the Telugu Desam Party on drawing the nation’s attention to the Babli issue by launching an agitation. But an agitation is only the first step in working towards a solution, he said.

 

Mr. Varma took strong exception to Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray’s comments against TDP President N. Chandrababu Naidu and Shiv Sainiks’ attempts to rake up a dispute over the Salura project.

 

 Party leaders Katari Srinivasa Rao, V. Laxman Balaji and V. Vijayender Reddy took part in the media conference.
