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.
