Tuesday, June 05, 2012
Dhanbad, India: Social activist KN Govindacharya on Monday urged all Indian political parties to come together for “national interest”.

Addressing a public gathering in Dhanbad, popularly known as the Coal Capital, the noted thinker said that a combined approach is needed so as to tackle issues related with Indian context.

Govindacharya is on a two-day visit to Jharkhand.

On Monday, he reached Dhansar in morning by Rajdhani Express from where he headed towards Rajganj.

At noon he reached Mantadh from there he went to Tooptanchi guest house. In evening, Govindacharya held a meeting with intellectuals at Katrash Railway Club.

The former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) General Secretary reached Dhanbad city around 7 PM where he addressed the crowd and supporters on various issues like cultural and moral values of India, budgetary allocation and corruption.

He demanded the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) led Centre to allot 7 percent of central budget to village assemblies. He asserted that the development initiatives of any village must be over-seen by the village head and other senior village assembly members and not by government appointed officials like Circle Development Officer (CDO) and Block Development Officer (BDO).

Over the burning issue of Foreign Direct Invest (FDI), Govindacharya, who is also known as a ‘walking university’ over several topics, said that comparing Indian economic situations with Europe can be disastrous.

The event was organised by the Regional Promoter of Bharatiya Swabhiman Trust and Editor of Digant Path Magazine - Shailendra Singh.

Govindacharya, long written off as a political force, will organise a Press Conference on Tuesday morning and later he will move towards Nirsa where he will address a general assembly.

Janta Party President Subramanian Swamy is also expected to join him later tomorrow.
