Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan today conveyed his greetings and good wishes to people on the eve of Deepavali.

 

Pointing out that Deepavali symbolizes the triumph of good over evil as per mythology and tradition, Dr. JP regretted that the contrary has become true in contemporary India. Millions of people continue to be mired in poverty and drudgery, although we have the resources and technologies to wipe every tear from every eye. Not a day passes without skeletons of corruption tumbling out of the cupboard from all over the country in most spheres of life including the highest judiciary. The chasm between rural and urban India, agriculture and industry, the poor and the rich has been ever widening.

 

Dr. JP said, “Let us resolve on the occasion of Deepavali to address some of these burning issues if we want to ensure that the festival of lights will in future at least mark the triumph of good over evil.”
