Hyderabad, Apr 7 UNI | 4 months ago

Lok Satta Party national president Jaiprakash Narayan today appealed people to elect him to the Lok Sabha and help him in his mission to revive the economy wrecked by 10 years of UPA rule, transform the nature of politics and ensure fulfilment of assurances given by the Central government in the wake of Andhra Pradesh's bifurcation.

Dr Narayan was addressing a gathering of party workers shortly before he filed his nomination papers for contesting to the Lok Sabha from Malkajigiri in Hyderabad.

He garlanded the portraits of Mahatma Gandhi and B R Ambedkar at the party headquarters before leaving for the office of the Ranga Reddy Collector for filing the nomination.

He said the country would face a bleak future if at least a crore of jobs were not created every year for the next ten years.

While China created one crore jobs a year in the manufacturing sector and became the workshop of the world, not even one lakh jobs were created in the manufacturing sector in India in the last ten years of UPA rule.

"We are exporting jobs and enriching China by importing everything ranging from mobile phones to crackers even as Indian youth languished for want of jobs. The day is not far off when we import even our national flags made in China. If God were to appear before me and ask me to name a wish, I will say jobs, jobs and jobs for youth," he said.
