S R Hiremath aspires to contest LS polls

Taking a jibe at the national political parties for their alleged failure in providing good governance, anti-graft crusader and chief of Samaj Parivarthan Samudaya S R Hiremath has expressed his desire to contest the General Elections in 2019.

Informing this to media persons in Dharwad on Thursday, Mr Hiremath stated that the ‘Mahamaitri’, comprising of Jan Sangram Parishat, Samaj Parivarthan Samudaya, and other like-minded organisations would be entering politics, with a sole intention of ensuring able administration and social justice for all, he said.

“I too aspire to contest the general elections in 2019, and ground work for the same has already begun,” he expressed. It might be a bit difficult to organise all the like-minded organisations and field candidates for assembly elections slated to be held next year, but, I am determined to contest for the Lok Sabha seat’, he added.

Mr Hiremath said, the election strategy would be knitted on lines with the marathon united struggle which was launched against illegal mining in State.

Winning election
He stated that winning the election is not important here, but this is an effort to create awareness among the people on the need to float an alternate political avenue.

He further said, the Swaraj India, Karnataka Shakti Sanghatane, AAP, CPI, CPM, and some others have decided to come together.

The Jan Sangram Parishat would be holding a voters’ awareness programme across the State on November 1. Key issues like social justice, keeping alive democracy, and equality for all would be the highlights of the rally.

The upcoming elections will set a perfect platform for the people to think wisely before casting their vote and decide whom to be elected to address their (people’s) burning issues. A party which has real concern towards society should come to power and not the ‘People in white’ who have been dodging the society since ages, Mr Hiremath added.
