Who is this video about?

Dr. Jayaprakash Narayanan (JP) is the National Coordinator of Lok Satta Party. Originally a physician, he joined civil services after passing IAS in 1980. During his 16-year tenure in public service, Dr. JP held various positions in various capacities across the districts of Andhra Pradesh. Even today, he is fondly remembered for many accomplishments to his credit in various fields – agriculture, irrigation, technology and youth rehabilitation.

However, Dr.JP could not turn his personal success into national development as he strongly believed that faulty governance impedes India’s path to progress. Thereby, he resigned from IAS in 1996 and became a democrat by conviction. Leading the beginning of a new political culture, he formed Lok Satta movement in 1997 that gradually grew to become India’s leading civil society initiative for political ad governance reforms, more popular in Andhra Pradesh.

Dr. JP has also written columns in some of the national dailies like Times of India, Economic Times, The Hindu and Financial Express.
