New political party

Ranchi, July 7: The Bharatiya Suraaj Manch, a civil society initiative, today announced the formation of a new political outfit to carry forward its campaign for good governance and poverty alleviation.

National convener of the Manch P.K. Siddharth said new Bharatiya Suraaj Dal would begin its journey from Jharkhand, with an aspiration to reach the national stage, to bring about good governance and protect the identity and pride of India.

Earlier this year, former IPS officer Siddharth had launched the apolitical Manch to demand electoral reforms and identify honest and capable candidates for the Lok Sabha, Assembly and local body polls. However, the Manch members, he pointed out, realised that only governments could bring about good governance and not any voluntary organisation.

“Governments are formed by political parties. However, no party emerged in the last several decades that could come up with a combination of revolutionary and committed leadership and a well thought out road map for change,” Siddharth, the president of the new party, said.

The party will be formally launched after its registration with the Election Commission of India, even though the Manch will continue to function.
