Udupi: Sandalwood actor-turned-politician Upendra said that his political outfit Prajakeeya party is looking for labourers who can work with the common people every day from 9 am to 6 pm. ours is a cashless party. We don’t spend money for elections. He was speaking at a press meet held at the Udupi Press club on Wednesday, December 6.
Addressing the mediapersons Upendra said, “Those who spend crores of Rupees for elections will be thinking of recovering the money once they win the elections. Caste politics is not acceptable. 70% of the politics is based on caste. We should not allow it to become 100%. Winning or losing in the elections is not important for us, but sending a good message to the society. People’s money should be spent for the welfare of the people through a proper understanding of the problems and providing smart solutions with Honesty and complete transparency stage by stage together with a vision for overall development.”
Upendra further said, “To contest Elections, candidates need to have a complete understanding of the problems of the state and their respective constituency and provide solutions with accurate knowledge of how much money is required and time taken to complete it. How each step can be taken with complete transparency and being in constant touch with the people. These are the basic necessities we look for in a candidate to reach the voter”.
Upendra also said, “We have received 50,000 mails so far and we are still scrutinizing many more applications. With the app and website, people will find it easier to communicate with us. Both the app and the website have details about how a person can go about with their application. We do not need any educational qualifications, but we want like-minded people who want to do good for the society”.
“The party is likely to come out with the election manifesto by the end of January. The menace of politics becoming business due to corruption could be tackled through free healthcare and education to all, he said and added that people are forced to become corrupt to provide quality education to children and save up for medical expenses. Prajakeeya would also focus on addressing basic issues of infrastructure — better roads, power and health facilities”, he said.
