Hyderabad: Lok Satta founder president Jaya Prakash Narayan will take up the ‘Swaraj Yatra’ in the two Telugu States of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh from September 15 in an attempt to help solve the problems facing the youth, middle classes, Dalits and other marginalised sections of the society through discussions.
Addressing a press conference here on Wednesday, Jaya Prakash Narayan said that he would undertake a tour in both the States to acquaint himself of the problems faced by the people there. He called up on the people irrespective of the party lines to join and discuss their problems with him.
