The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) plans to hold a massive rally in Lucknow in the state capital on the tenth death anniversary of its founder Kanshi Ram on Sunday. The party has booked more than a dozen trains and thousand vehicles to bring supporters and workers to Lucknow’s Kanshi Ram Eco Garden where the party chief Mayawati will address the supporters. In the wake of the recent defections from the party, some 13 sitting MLAs are planning to showcase its strength through the event.
According to a Northern Railway release, an advisory has been issued to passengers traveling on October 9 to avoid the rush. It has also made some changes in the platform numbers for halting of major trains like Lucknow Mail, Mahamana Express and Garib Rath among others.
The BSP leaders have been holding meetings in all the areas of the state to mobilise their supporters and a minimum of 10,000 supporters are expected to attend the rally, party sources claimed.
