Amid speculation, former IPS officer and former joint director of the CBI V V Lakshminarayana left his future in politics to the God. Keeping his cards close to his chest, he said his mission right now was to interact with the people and understand their problems. “Joining any party will come later as my priority is to understand the problems,” he said.
Interstingly, Lakshminarayana had started his public life in Guntur by interacting with the farmers and then moved to the north coastal Andhra for direct interaction with the people and then moved to the south coastal district of Nellore. Again, in less than two months, he had come back to the north coastal districts, where he had locked up with the peoples’ interaction. He is also interacting with the small and influential groups like rotary clubs and lions clubs.
“I am not associated with any political party. Rumour mongers are spreading false stories that I am in touch with RSS. I am working for farmers’ issues and implementation of Swaminathan Commission recommendations”, he said.
The former IPS officer is focusing on the farmers, youth and the organised groups like doctors, advocates and teachers to get the pulse of the people. Going by his interactions, it looks like he is a different material unlike former IAS Jayaprakash Narayana, who started Lok Satta and had become an MLA. He is taking time to understand where his role is and where he can fit in the most competitive political career.
“God will decide whether I will contest or not in the coming elections, but I will work for betterment of society. Villages are being destroyed due to liquor and other bad habits. Farmers should give up these habits for prosperity. The MGNREGS scheme should be linked with agriculture works for better results”, he said.
