Accountability... good to know!!!!

I have always thought of JP as a hope in the current completely corrupt political arena. He has been with political leaders for quite some time and yes, he knows the ins and outs and ifs and buts of the political leaders when he was in administrative service, but still he is not yet prepared to face it. He is not as evil-minded and plotting as them but I feel he is a bit laid back. Okay, I agree that quote of Martin Luther King that Silence of good men is more dangerous than brutality of bad men. But there is no point working silently when so-called leaders are shouting on top of their voices and screaming their lungs out and diverting our attention.

I would have been more pleased if he were a bit more aggressive in bringing out those sheep-skinned wolves and stripping them naked of their evil deeds. I believe that he has that power to do so and maybe he alone can do it because he is untouched by any of it so far. I would be lying if I would say I am happy with his performance and want to see more of it. I even find him being diplomatic and noncommittal in various aspects that he can actually fight for and bring into fore. The problem is we have put in a lot many expectations on a single person who is battling against all odds alone. He is no doubt working but with the backing of most educated people he could have done much better than losing himself in that ocean of evil-minded people.

OH has been into active volunteering during the elections in March and April and he felt good about it, I feel good about endorsing JP-brand politics but I would be more happy if he is a bit more open and try to get his words heard than moving with the herd or working silently...

He has done a lot, and aspires to do a lot.. but when cleaning up the core corruption layering from decades after the independence is a huge task it would help if he focuses on exposing them as well as inching towards progress in his own small way. There are volunteers who want to do so much, steer them to the tasks he wants to do now and focus on information and advertising self!!!! When in Rome, be like a Roman... so those who dont do anything claim so much, why not say and show what you have done...

JP sir, waiting for more from you...!! if I and a lot more people like me want our little ones to join your silent revolution, you need to be a little more aggressive than be lost in that ocean!!!!!

Pass it on you guys, JP needs to be heard and known by people all over.. maybe we can all shake him up a little and make him more aggressive. I am sure he has an answer for his approach but sir I would like to hear it loud and clear!!!

MLP is MLK Prasanna. He took 2 months vacation and went to India to campaign for Loksatta.

BTW... JP is BOLD at his best. No individual person in current/future politics can put a brave face like him. He is doing his best and we cannot expect more from him.

We need to define what do we mean by being bold. He is against bandh's and strikes. He is against masala or yellow journalism. vaadu vedava... veedu khooni kor... vaadu pundakor... ilantivi tittataniki verey party lu unnai. We don't need JP or LS here. Other parties are already doing it.

During election time he spent hours every day with the media explaining how the system can be improved (not aiming at any individual but ALL in general). But not even a single TV/Paper published them. In fact they sold his lectures to other party libraries as it had deep analysis and research, which no political party can even dream of doing themselves.

oka disti bomma ki edo party jenda tagilinchi... danni cheppultho kotti unte... anni channels live coverage ichi undevi... they don't want what is good... they want what sells. But he made sure that his followers didn't adopt such silly techniques. I see this as an achievement.

When other parties invite journalists, they provide packets. They write based on the 'weight' of the packets. LS provides half cup of tea and two good biscuits each.

There are a lot of people who approached JP last time to get a party ticket. They all wanted to contest on Loksatta's name as they couldn't get seat by other traditional parties. JP declined them. I see this as another achievement. How long he can continue do this? How much he can do things alone?

Look at the voting percentage during GHMC elections? 44%? Is that the best Hyderabad can do? Its easy to criticize JP, but very difficult to follow him.

We have to understand one thing. JP alone cannot do everything. He is one of ants like us who is not happy about the snakes. It is upto us whether to follow his direction. If we are just observing what JP as ant can do... we will be disappointed. There is no doubt JP is a bravest/rarest ant. He is putting up a fight to move mountains. We need to think what is the best way to help him? To move the mountain along with him or stand aside and measure his performance?

true Syam but I guess, he should raise his voice stronger, making people hear his views and raise a voice.. who is stopping them to use their blog/website as their voice.. it is only the educated anyways who support the party as of now... some noise, some little flutter will take them a long way.. i dont want to belittle his efforts but would certainly say, it is just not enough..
