The Freedom Team of India has, after consideration of the actions taken by Lok Satta Party towards the end of its campaign in the 2014 General elections – of blindly singing praise of BJP and Modi – has decided to delist Lok Satta Party. This means FTI members joining LSP will now be automatically disqualified from FTI membership, and any existing FTI member of LSP will need to resign from LSP.
In early 2013, FTI had specifically disapproved socialist AAP for our members, leading ultimately to the termination of membership for three FTI members. (Our basic requirements do not possibly allow any FTI member to join Congress or BJP, or other such corrupt socialist party – just in case you are wondering why these "mainstream" parties are not mentioned).
The resolution passed by FTI in May 2014 reads:
FTI resolves that its members can join one of the following parties if they wish to pursue politics in advance of the 500 members assembling:
Tier 1 Party (totally committed to FTI's Sone Ki Chidiya reform agenda): Swarna Bharat Party
Tier 2 Parties: (Broadly liberal but where FTI members should influence towards SKC agenda) Swatantra Bharat Party and Navbharat Party
Tier 3 Parties: (Some liberal ideas, but not consistent and not to be directly supported. FTI members should either be able to change these parties towards SKC agenda and total integrity, or resign from these parties at the earliest): Bharat Uday Mission and Jago Party
Joining any party not listed above will lead to the automatic termination of FTI membership."
