‘Welfare Party of India’ as it would be named will formally launched after a political convention ‘Towards Value Based politics’ here on Monday. Prominent political leaders, thinkers, intellectuals and social activists would address the convention.
In a party formation meeting here on Sunday Mujtaba Farooq was elected as the all India President of the Party.
“We are forming a political outfit Welfare Party of India,” said Dr. S Q R Ilyas the convenor of new outfit.
He said people need a new political option as corruption in this field is rampant and so “we decided to form a party, which will be devoid of corrupt leaders.”
He clarified that the party would not only represent Muslims but also other minorities and weaker sections of the society. The new party would also raise issues of national interest and inclusive development.
Apart from Mr. Farooq and Dr. Ilyas, former Member of Parliament Ilyas Azmi, Dr. Zafarul Islam Khan, Maulana Abdul Wahab Khilji, Smt. Lalita Naik and others are likely to address the convention.
The Indian Awaaz was first to report about the formation of this party two month ago.
