Hyderabad: Blaming the current crisis to the leadership failure, Lok Satta National President Dr Jayaprakash Narayan held that leaders rather than resolving issues were creating atmosphere of schism between the people speaking same language.
The national president of Lok Satta Party was speaking after unveiling the National Flag at the party headquarters to mark Hyderabad Liberation Day. He lamented that even the minor issues were blown into major crises, owing to the leadership failure.
“Unlike leaders of bygone era who had worked for nation building and promoting harmony, today’s leaders were more into promoting their own families and drawing political mileage by inciting animosities between people”, he felt. Jayaprakash Narayan recalled that leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru and Sardar Patel were successful in integrating 562 provinces in the Indian Union peacefully within15 months after Independence.
Leaders in the post-Independence era facilitated linguistic reorganization of States even as countries like several other countries were drawn into Civil wars and conflicts after they achieved Independence. According to him, India has seen great leaders like Lal Bahadur Shastri, who persuaded privileged to succor hungry by fasting a day in a week. While today’s leaders have lost the moral high ground to persuade people to contribute to the current account deficit of $ 80 billion.
He said that like August 15, even September 17 will become ritualistic celebration without imbibing the spirit of service, national vision and dedication of leaders like Patel, Dr Ambedkar, Nehru and Moulana Azad. “The country today needs leaders who can harmonize conflicting interests, resolve problems amicably, promote economic development and inspire people to make sacrifices for a better future for their children”, he noted.
