“We never opposed politics but consider it as a sacred act. It is our firm belief that change of regimes every five years could not ensure improvement in the conditions of people living in a state” he noted. The Lok Satta leader said that the basic character and attitude of a government and those who lead it should change towards people and their needs. Intellectuals and good citizens should come forward to question the misdeeds of the rulers for the sustenance of democracy, Rammohan Rao asserted.

Strengthening of federal system, holding elections to directly elect chief ministers, civic services as a right, free education and health services to all and making agriculture a profitable activity were the focus points for the future work, he explained. It was being planned to impart leadership training to the youth as part of Lok Satta expansion, he added.
