Jobs and Training, Electricity, Anti-Corruption and Green Movement
Lok Satta has always advocated that every individual should be encouraged to be enterprising and economically independent. In our endeavour to ensure this, hundreds of job melas and vocational training sessions are being organized for the residents of Kukatpally, specially for women and unemployed youth in a variety of areas and thousands of residents are continually benefiting from these programs.
Jobs Melas and Skills Training for Youth

The land values in Kukatpally are very high; we urge people to think about what would have happened if any other representative was in the place of JP.
