Attempting to gather a record crowd for BSP chief Mayawati’s address at Lucknow’s Kanshi Ram Eco Garden on the death anniversary of the party’s founder Sunday, BSP leaders have scheduled about one dozen special trains and more than one thousand vehicles to bring party supporters from across the state.

As many as 13 MLAs of the BSP have joined other parties in the last few months. The party, said a source, wants to
counter this by a huge show of strength.

Watch what else is making news:

BSP functionaries have been holding meetings in all the areas of the state to mobilise their supporters. MLC and
BSP’s west UP coordinator, Atar Singh Rao, said at least one dozen trains will carry party supporters from Moradabad, Saharanpur and Meerut divisions. BSP coordinators said they are targeting a crowd of 5,000 to 10,000 from each of the 403 constituencies.

      Mayawati and Mulayam have ruined UP by looting recklessly in last 25 years. Both leaders ruled UP but no tangible progress is visible anywhere in the state except making stone images worth thousand of crores by Mayawati. The people are fade up with dramas of CORRUPT AND ANTI-PEOPLE POLITICIANS who are wasting public money on pomp and shows while billion of people are suffering due to rampant corruption compelling people to live in poverty and backwardness where even basic necessities are not provided by govt. What is an alternative for people specially youths of the country who are running pillars to post for post of peons, sweepers and other menials jobs which are not available for them while illiterate sons and daughters of politicians are holding top posts in govt as CM, DyCM, ministers and other posts? Laloo and Mulayam's families are glaring examples when both illiterate sons of Laloo are made DyCM and minister in Bihar by Nitish Kumar and all members of Mulayam's families are holding important posts in UP govt. Rahul is another example who is dreaming for PM at the cost of nation bringing poverty and backwardness all over the country so that stan can launch a mive attack on India if such a weak person is made PM of India. What is an alternative for educated and qualified youths of UP who have no future ? So this is the responsibility of youths of UP to oust all corrupt and non-performing parties like SP, BSP and CONGRESS in embly elections.
