Chandigarh 15th September:- A newly formed Political party-National Freedom Party(NFP) is all set to bring in big and revolutionary changes in political landscape of Punjab. The party will take on all big ones in the coming Punjab Assembly elections and will contest all seats.
Some prominent leaders of several different political parties, who talked about Punjab’s interest, were forced to quit their respective parties, the NFP would provide them a very strong political platform. The NFP is expecting their support in a big way and major announcement with this regard would make very soon.
The NFP is established and being spearheaded by the Vivekananda Foundation; a New Delhi- based NGO engaged in social works and has lakhs of volunteers across the country. The Foundation and the Party has accorded top priority to Punjab as it is facing major social ills including drug syndicate being patronized by the ruling political party and government establishments and agencies.
Talking to Media, Amlan Biswas, Managing Trustee, Vivekananda Foundation and Senior leader of NFP said that after several years of social works, we decided to form a new political party to bring in real and revolutionary changes in the country. Punjab is our top priority as the state is facing many social problems just because of its current political setup and their vested interests. He added that we promise to expose the drug syndicate and if voted to power, we would not only break the political-smuggler nexus but send all the culprits to jail, irrespective of their political and bureaucratic status.
Amlan Biswas further said that in view of existing problems, Punjab needs a clean and sensitive government which deeply understands social issues, i.e. drugs, NRI marriages, infiltration and the Foundation- backed NFP would certainly provide a viable option. He said that on the eve of Gandhi Jayanti October 1, the Party will declare its national and states’ executive committees.
Amlan Biswas further mentioned that we held all major political parties responsible for pathetic state of affairs in Punjab. There is no growth oriented development or inclusive growth, ills like unemployment, hunger & corruption are on all-time high, law and order situation ( Terror attack on Police state in Gurdaspur last year) is worsening day by day. Youth are frustrated. In such a scenario, we will bring in real change.
Announcing its electoral strategies and future plans, Dinesh Chauhan, Chairperson of the Foundation said that we have chalked out our political and electoral actions for the coming Assembly elections. We have decided to contest all Assembly seats in three states-Punjab, Goa and Gujarat next year and Tripura in 2018. The foundation is spearheading this political movement with the help of its youth cadre, intellectuals and support of those who seek real change in the system.
Dinesh Chauhan added that now, the Mission is to mobilize youth of Punjab to join this movement which seeks to reform the system and would provide better governance option with new elements like ‘ Know Your Government’ (KYG). The Party aims to fulfill the new age aspirations of youth with its clear, transparent and realistic vision. The party, with support of the foundation, enjoys huge support base in many parts of the country. The drug syndicate and nexus is out to finish the youth of the state, the NFP would ensure the demise of this syndicate.
Dinesh Chauhan said that we will be announcing national and states’ executive committees on October 1, 2016 with a mega launch event to mark respect for Mahatama Gandhi. Cadre, supporters and leaders from several parts of the country will gather on that day to be part of this new movement.
