Yours faithfully,

Since SBP members were busy with Uttarakhand relief work, we sought a two month extension from ECI for this.

Over the past two weeks SBP members have been working hard on getting this delivered. The cost estimate for the advertisements is about Rs.65,000 (including miscelleneous travel, etc. for the key members)

In The Hindu rate will be

12×7=84×100.00=8400.00x2days= 16800.00(The Hindu)
12×7=84×150.00=12600.00x2days=25200.00(Rashtriya Sahara)
12×7=84×70.00=5880.00×2 days=11760.00(Rashtrawadi Times, Eng)
12×7=84×50.00=4200.00x2days=8400.00(Rashtrawadi Times, Hindi)

So this appeal is for Rs.70,000 – just for the purpose of getting the advertisements organised, and revised document/s lodged with ECI.

Bank account

We have tried very hard to open a bank account but ALL banks have refused to do so till the party is registered with the Election Commission of India. We have issued a request for PAN and as soon as the party is registered we'll open the bank account. In the meanwhile, Retd. Wing Commander KK Verma has kindly agreed to accept contributions into his bank account from which the advertisements can be paid for.
