BJP MP of UP to sit on dharna against the SP govt tomorrow for 24 hours

download (95)Lucknow, Jul 3-Continuing with its tirade against the Samajwadi Party government, the BJP MPs from Uttar Pradesh will stage 24 hour long dharna in front of Vidhan Bhawan here from tomorrow against the mis-rule of the Akhilesh Yadav government . "All the MPs from Uttar Pradesh barring ministers will sit on dharna outside Vidhan Bhawan that will start at 10 tomorrow morning and will continue till 10 on Sunday morning," BJP spokesman Vijay Bahadur Pathak told reporters here today. "There are 71 MPs from Bharatiya Janata Party in Lok Sabha and three in Rajya Sabha. Of them eight are ministers in the Union Cabinet. The ministers in the Modi Government are however exempted from this protest. Some local leaders and office-bearers including state president of the party Dr Laxmi Kant Bajpai are expected to take part in the agitation," Pathak said. Mr Pathak said that MPs will protest against prevailing law and order situation in the state, government’s decision to raise power tariff in urban areas and also highlight the woes of the farmers. The leaders will also raise the issue of use of saffron flag during a mock riot drill by the Allahabad Police last month, he said. He said this protest is in continuation of the series of agitations launched by the BJP against the state government. In its earlier two-day protest the party had staged dharna at tehsil level and then protests were held at the district level. "In this protest the MPs will expose the lies of the state government. Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav had been saying that BJP has 71 MPs from UP but were not doing enough for the development of the state. But the fact is Government has never involved these MPs in the development schemes," Mr Pathak said. The BJP spokesman said that the MPs will also expose how state government is not implementing the development schemes of the centre. "They will question as why state government has failed to utilize compensation given by the Union Government," he said. The MPs will later submit a memorandum to the Governor.
