A new political party has emerged in Karnataka. Jana Samanya Paksha (Common Man's Party) was launched by Dr Aiyapppa, who stated that they are pro-farmers and common people. "The land, water and language of the state is being compromised. Thus to set this right, we have formed the party," he said.
The party was inaugurated by watering a sapling by farmer woman Nimbevva in the presence of thousands of farmers. Dr Aiyappa lashed out at the BJP and said speeches, changing coats every day will not give the party any votes.
"We are ready to spend Rs 20 crore to defeat any party which is not pro-common people. Give us one month; we will collect Rs 100 from each farmer and build the Kalasa Banduri Channel in one month," he said as a warning to the government.
Jana Samanya Paksha will contest in all 224 constituencies in the Karnataka Assembly election.
Is this party too trying to ride on the Mahadayi wave?
Why is every party, whether new or established, speaking emotionally in this regard and keeping the people in the dark about the legal, technical aspects of it?
