Lucknow: With senior BJP leader L K Advani
all set to embark on his "anti-corruption yatra", the party would be releasing a `ghotala chalisa` to equip partymen with
a list of alleged scams plaguing the UPA and BSP governments.
The party has already released separate booklets on the
scams, both at the Centre and the state. However, the `ghotala
chalisa`, a booklet of 48 pages, would give a summary of all
alleged scams and would come in handy for party workers and
leaders criss-crossing the state in the coming days, party
spokesman Vijay Pathak said here.
The party central unit had earlier released a booklet on various scams like the Commonwealth Games and 2G spectrum which were used in the Assam Assembly elections, he said.
Similarly, the state unit had released a list of 100
alleged scams of the Mayawati government worth over Rs. 2.74
lakh crores and they will be incorporated in this booklet, he
said, adding they include scams in land acquisition and
allotment in Greater Noida and Noida, sale of sugar mills and
irregularities in construction of parks and memorials.
The `ghotala chalisa` is scheduled to be released a day
after the birth anniversary of party ideologue Pt. Deen Dayal
Upadhaya on September 25 by national vice president Mukhtar
Abbas Naqvi and national secretary Kirit Somaiya in Lucknow.
Somaiya said the booklet would be distributed among one
lakh active workers in the first phase. "Through them we would
be apprising the public about the irregularities committed by
about two dozen central ministers and officials", he said.
Somaiya said that party was also working on unearthing
scams at the district level for which 18 districts of the
state have already been covered. "By November end we would
cover about 50 districts and they would also be highlighted
among the public later", he said.
