'Govt has failed to provide health care, edn'

Mangalore, Nov 19, 2012, DHNS:

The Welfare Party of India (WPI)  has been launched as the country is not really free claimed WPI National Vice President B T Lalitha Naik.

Delivering the inaugural speech at a public meet organised by the WPI, she said that freedom is precious as many freedom fighters have sacrificed their life for it. However, today there is a need to question, whether India is really free.

Even after 65 years of independence, there are many who say that India would have progressed with the British rule. People are not happy with the present political set up. Corruption is rampant all over.

The WPI was formed to free the nation from corruption. The government has failed to provide its citizens with basic necessities like health care and education, regretted Naik.
“The BJP rule is one of the worst the state has ever had. The politicians have become rich by swindling money and the State has become poor.


On the other hand, the Congress in the name of development, is engaged in  snatching away the bread and butter from poor people,” she added. She said the government is busy in finding temporary solutions to the problems faced in the country. There is a need to find out the root cause of the problems, instead of finding temporary solutions.

There are 5,620 gram panchayats in Karnataka with 91,402 women representatives in these Panchayats. It is said that 6,000 women representatives are illiterate.  There are all possibilities of misuing their rule and power, which is dangerous, she said.

WPI Kasargod President Professor T T Jacob said that the party was formed to protect the unity in diversity of India. The WPI is a value based party which tries to minimise the differences between the haves and have-nots, he added.
WPI DK District President Zaheed Hussain also spoke.

WPI National General Secretary P C Hamza, WPI Kasargod Vice President Ravindra Bramheshwar and others were present.
