The Lok Satta Party today exhorted Andhra Pradesh government to launch a campaign to educate the people on the use of toilets and ensure that public health is not endangered because of unhygienic practices. Party spokesman Katari Srinivasa Rao and Working Committee members N Ravinder and Ms K Gita Murthy told newspersons that the media that the Government could think of utilizing the services of youth for maintenance of toilets and provide them livelihood. They were commenting on the report that around 85 per cent of the rural population in the State still defecates in the open and that although 58 per cent of the rural areas have toilets, only 30 per cent of them are used. Meanwhile, retired Director General of Police of West Bengal Devendranath Pandey, who is now settled in Hyderabad, today joined the party.

Inducting him into the party's Working Committee, party president Jayaprakash Narayan said Mr Pandey joining the party underlined the quest for change that is evident among youth and middle classes in the country. Having been fed up with traditional parties which had failed the country, more and more number of people throughout the country are looking for a meaningful alternative that will change the nature of politics.
