New Delhi, Jun 19 (UNI) Even as the Congress and the Bhartiya Janta Party get ready to battle it out for the set of power in the Delhi Assembly, elections for which are scheduled later this year, a group of professionals today came together to form a new party with an endeavour to bring change in the prevailing system.
A group of 18600 professionals, including doctors, journalists, engineers, lawyers, Teachers and retired Army personnel today came together to form the Naya Daur party, which aims to fight the coming Assembly polls on the core issues of good governence, health and education.
Addressing a press conference here, the founder of Naya Daur Lokesh Paliwal said the party has given a call to people to join it in large numbers with the foremost aim of establishing a fair and equitable system in the State.
In order to bring about transparency in its working in the runup to the Assembly polls, the party will elect a council of members which will choose common people to contest the election.
The party's endeavour would be to ensure that more and more people vote in the elections.
Speaking at the press conference one of the senior members of the party, Wing Commander Bakshi said,''a change is required in the system for which one has to go inside the system and change it. This is the exact reason why this party has been formed.'' Mr Paliwal said it was the party's endeavour to rope in as many people as possible in the runup to the polls.
''Till now, we have managed to garner support from over 2 lakh people in Delhi alone,''Paliwal said.
He said contesting the Delhi Assembly polls was the first step in its endeavour to bring about change.
''Since Delhi has predominance of middle class people, we are starting our campaign from Delhi. Also, Delhi being the heart of India, whoever wins Delhi has the pulse of India,''Paliwal said.
He said the party planned to contest all the 70 seats in the Delhi Assembly.
