About Loksatta Party

Loksatta Aandolan began as a citizen's movement in 1996 to help promote electoral and governance reforms. Loksatta Party was born in 2006 out of the realization that the best and brightest of society need to embrace politics. It is the party for the new generation, a generation that is sick and tired of dynastic and vote bank politics, a generation that has no time for politics run by the unholy trinity of corruption, greed and nepotism.
