BANGALORE: Politicians who buy votes during elections should know that it will pave way for violence in the society one day or the other, warned Kadidalu Shamanna, social activist.

Speaking at the launch of a new political party, Praja Pragathi Ranga, in the city recently, he regretted that political parties were controlling their vote banks which was a threat to India and our democracy.

Need of the hour is to have alternative parties which are pro-people, he opined.

The Praja Pragathi Ranga aims to address the needs of the people.

M Venkataswamy who spoke on the occasion said, politicians have spoiled the concept of alternative politics that was launched by veteran politicians like Ramakrishna Hegde.

Main stream parties were involved in ‘compromise’ politics which was a danger to the nation.

However, Praja Pragathi Ranga would not commit such mistakes.

The aim of the party is to organise people and bring them together to ensure equality, freedom and brotherhood in the society.

Kodihalli Chandrashekar, president of the party, C S Dwarakanath, former president of backward classes and minorities and Abdul Majeer also spoke on the occasion.
