Lucknow: With an eye on the forthcoming
Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh, BJP has decided to take out
two "Jan Swabhiman yatras" from different parts of the state
over the issue of corruption and "poor" law and order.
"The two yatras would raise the issue of corruption of
the government, poor law and order and loot of public money,"
BJP spokesman Vijay Bahadur Pathak said.
The first yatra would start from Bharat Mata Mandir in
Kashi and the other one would commence from Nagla Chandrabhan,
birth place of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya, in Mathura.
While former BJP president Rajnath Singh would lead the
yatra from Mathura, second yatra from Kashi would be led by
national vice-president Kalraj Mishra.
The yatra would commence from October 13 and end on
"31 districts would be covered in the first phase of
yatra. Yatra starting from Mathura would culminate at
Lakhimpur, whereas another one would end at Jalaun on October
22," Pathak said.
