Bengaluru: Kannada film star Upendra, yesterday announced that he would launch a new political party in the State.
The actor said that he plans to form a party that creates a platform for talents who have ideas and skills to solve people problems. Clad in a khaki shirt, Upendra said that the dress symbolises that the party doesn’t want Jana Nayaka (public leader) or Jana Sevaka (public servant), but needs Jana Karmika (public worker) who stays in a particular area and honestly works for people there, for a salary.
The announcement comes a day after he gave a clear indication about his political plunge through an audio clip, where he said “somebody has to take the responsibility to change things. I am ready to take it.”
He said he would come out with a name for the party after discussing it with those who are willing to join him.
