BSP to hold Brahmin Maha Sammelan on Sunday
Lucknow: Aimed at wooing Brahmin voters ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) will organise a Maha Sammelan in Lucknow on Sunday.
The Sammelan would cover three Parliamentary constituencies of Barabanki, Lucknow and Mohanlalganj, party MP, Brijesh Pathak said.
Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president Mayawati will be the chief guest at the Brahmin Maha Sammelan where she is expected to elaborate her poll strategy, besides, highlighting the party`s stand on the various issues concerning the upper castes, especially Brahmins.
The party is leaving no stone unturned to stress that they have a hold on the Brahmin voters. It has organised a series of around 38 sammelans for the Brahmins criss-crossing the state in order to repeat its feat in the 2007 Assembly Elections.
This time BSP has given tickets to 20 Brahmins among the 71 candidates already declared for the Lok Sabha polls.
In the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, the BSP had fielded 20 Brahmins, of which five had won.
