Lokparitran Party -- The political party with a difference

I knew it as the political outfit formed by "IIT-ans" . A fwded mail from a friend woke me up from my slumber to know more about them. The Lokparitran party founded by five IIT-ans is contesting in the upcoming assembly elections in Tamil Nadu,Kerala,Pondicherry.

For those of us who crib about lack of choice while voting, here is something to think about. Please visit their website to know more about these educated young men who want to make a difference. I wish them all the best !

Here is a list of the contesting candidates :
