New Delhi, Oct 10 (UNI) Author-motivator-turned-polititian Shiv Khera, who recently launched the Bhartiya Rashtravadi Samanata Party (BRSP), today said his party would contest at least five seats in the upcoming Assembly elections in Delhi.
Releasing the party's election manifesto, he said,''But wherever we'll find good candidates we would have them contest.'' Giving details about the BRSP's 16-point agenda of strengthening India and securing its future, Mr Khera said the party's manifesto was not just a description of issues for consideration, but it provides in-depth solutions as well.
Referring to the current state of affairs, he said citizens were forced to pay bribes to get justice and even basic amenities like food and water. ''Is it not extortion? Then what is the difference between mafia and the government? The need of the hour is to give our country in the hands of those people who can take it forward without breaking its unity,'' he said.
Raising other issues like reservation and terrorism, Mr Khera condemned the policy of casteism and regionalism being followed by other political parties.
Reiterating the party's aim to reform the country, Mr Khera called for a Uniform Civil Code and uniform education system across the country so that everybody could compete on merit.
''Also important is the eradication of corruption, crime, injustice and poverty and bringing equality among all. This would happen only if the causes of all these problems are treated at root level.'' he said.
Talking about the key features of the party, Mr Khera said the time-bound agenda set by the members and their willingness to work towards it is what makes their party stand out.
Touting the newly floated party's credential, he said,'' The BRSP is a party which has been created by like-minded professional people who otherwise had been highly successful in their fields.'' ''Out of sheer concern for the nation they have volunteered and have taken upon themselves to correct the corrupt system rather than criticise it. They have challenged the policy of appeasement which is caste-based and dividing the nation,'' he said.
Speaking on the occasion, Ms Nidhi Mahajan, who is contesting from Dwarka constituency, said the party had been formed to make a difference in society and would leave no stone unturned to serve the country and its people.
Mr Chandrakant Tyagi has been appointed as the Delhi State President, Mr Sandeep Shakti Dubey as the National Youth President and Mr Naushad Ahmed Khan as the General-Sectratary, Delhi State.
