Anupama Shenoy launches new party, Bharatiya Janashakti Congress
Ballari: Bharatiya Janashakti Congress is the new political party launched by Anupama Shenoy, former Deputy Superintendent of Police, at Kudligi in Ballari district on Wednesday.
Ms. Shenoy, who served in Kudligi sub-division, was abruptly transferred, allegedly for not attending a call from the then district in-charge Minister P.T. Parmeshwar Naik and also for taking on the liquor lobby head-on. Though she was reinstated, she chose to resign and had announced the launch of a new political party of her own.
On Wednesday, Ms. Shenoy, accompanied by a group of people, offered tributes to the ashes of Mahatma Gandhi and came out in a procession to Panchacharya Kalyan Mantap to launch the party.
Speaking on the occasion, she said that apart from fighting against corruption and ensuring rule of law, her party would encourage youths with leadership qualities to come to the forefront.
