Lucknow: The Congress on Tuesday said it would
lay a siege to the Uttar Pradesh legislative assembly after
the culmination of its ongoing rallies in the state.
"After the culmination of its Sandesh Yatras, the
party, under the stewardship of its youth leader Rahul Gandhi,
will lay a siege to the assembly," a party statement quoting
general secretary Digvijay Singh said.
The Congress would also demand the ouster of Chief
Minister Mayawati, it said.

The statement said Singh, addressing a public meeting
at Pihani in Hardoi district, asked Mayawati to oust Ministers
with alleged criminal background to show that she was sincere
in her campaign to cleanse the party.

Singh, in-charge of party`s affairs in Uttar Pradesh,
said the Congress would issue a charge-sheet against the
Mayawati government on October two when the second phase of
party`s Sandesh Yatras would start.
