The Lok Satta Party whole-heartedly welcomes the formation of Telangana as part of a comprehensive and amicable solution.
The people of Telangana have repeatedly expressed their aspiration for a separate state and it cannot be ignored in a democratic society, Lok Satta president Jayaprakash Narayan said here on Tuesday.
Addressing a press conference on the sixth anniversary of the foundation of the party, JP appealed to the political parties and the masses to observe restraint regarding the T issue.
“While the political parties have the right to carry on movements, they should not in the process foment hatred or disrupt normal life and undermine the future of the youth,” he said.
“The state is already going through a crisis with investors shunning AP as a prefered destination for investments.
With the government being in a state of paralysis, the media should keep public interest in mind and should not magnify trivial issues,” he said.
Answering a query on TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu’s marathon Padayatra, he said that with a rich experience as a politician for over three decades, Naidu should now act like a statesman and come up with honest and concrete solutions to the state’s umpteen problems and not focus on shortterm gains.
He also blamed courts for repeated postponement of elections to local bodies under some pretext or the other offered by the state government
