Swarna Bharat Party (SBP), a newly founded political venture, is looking for candidates for the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections.

SBP is a relatively new and unrecognized party in the Indian Political spectrum. The party recognizes itself as classical liberal, and is very vocal about how Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) is robbing Indians of their opportunities and freedom.

The party promises to make India liberal again, because according to international standards, we are as a country nothing but ‘banana republic.’ Our country needs a change and SBP, if elected, promises to change India for better.

Sanjeev Sabhlok notes that people are not happy with BJP as it has been spreading rabid communalism and stoking hatred.

In a recent blog entry by Sanjeev Sabhlok, he calls out for 50 more candidates who are willing to be a part of their team and stand in the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections against some of the biggest names in Indian Politics.

The message which was put out, underlines the unhappiness and dissatisfaction of Indian Public with BJP, while completely dismissing Congress as an alternative. It also highlights the successful footing SBP has been able to achieve in its short tenure.

Sabhlok wrote,

I’d like to update that after putting in just a couple of months of effort on the ground in some 2019 Lok Sabha constituencies, we are starting to get a very good response from people, and are now starting to prepare booth level organisation in one of the constituencies.

The post shone a light on the bias people have for the parties who put out more candidates in the election. Keeping this in mind, and the good responses that the party is getting for their work in various constituencies, SBP is in want of 50 more candidates to fight election under their banner.

SBP believes each one of us can make a difference and to bring in a change, we need to put in our efforts, at a very personal cost and time.

Interested candidates can contact SBP via their e-mail address, info@swarnabharat.in
