  1. When I heard the news aout this party I got excited and checked the website ( found:

    1.Lok pritaran party has not sought any application from candidates through their website. Even when I tried to lOG IN they say they will send the confirmation to our E-mail address but it was not sent yet. Can Mr. Chandershekhar reply to that?

    2. Surprisingly when you click the "contact us" menu in their website they dont have any e-mail contact address, they want people to contact them through telephone only.

    Is it what expected from IITians?
