Bangalore, Feb 1(UNI) Janata Dal (United) state unit President B Somasekhar today said that there is an urgent need to launch a mass movement for restoration of value-based politics in public life.
Addressing a seminar on the role of intelligentsia in the restoration of value-based politics in public life here today he said that the degeneration of values was creeping even in the judiciary and media making the society more vulnerable to exploitation by corrupt elements.
Stating that there is a lack of leaders with an universal appeal he said that the present generation of leaders like to identify themselves with one group, caste or creed resulting in further fragmentation of the society.
JD (U) believes in value-based politics and not rally-based politics, he said adding that there is a need for launching of the mass movement in line with the one taken up by Jayaprakash Narayan.
