A new national political party launched

New Delhi: A new political party called “Social Democratic Party of India” held its first delegates meet on 18 October 2009 at FICCI Auditorium here. Addressing the delegate, E. Abubacker, President of SDPI, explained the reason of forming a political party and said that even after sixty years of independence, more than 60 percent of the population reeled below the poverty line and India leads the world in infant mortality, hence the party’s slogan: “Freedom from Hunger”. Polarity on communal lines has increased manyfolds and the society is witnessing various kinds of discriminations on the basis of caste, creed, domicile, language and sex, he said adding that everywhere the under-privileged are under constant fear and therefore the party’s other slogan says: “Freedom from Fear”. The SDPI will strive for the welfare of the people of this country and the would and will not be a sectarian party. E. Abubacker asked the delegates to strive for two things: retrieve the lost values and principles of the country and create a new India based on equal rights for all without discrimination.
