Lucknow: Accusing the Centre and UP
government of being hand in glove on price rise issue,
Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on Sunday said there
was possibility of mid-term election in the state.

"People, who are taking a beating due to price rise
due to connivance of the two governments, should remain
prepared for a unified protest on the issue on April 27,"
Yadav said while addressing a meeting of state executive and
Legislative Party at SP headquarters here.

"There is a possibility of mid-term elections in the
state, therefore party leaders and workers should go among the
people," he said.

He alleged that the Centre and the state have made
education and health facilities expensive which has hit poor
and middle class badly.

"Take support of all sections including industrial and
business establishments, teachers, students, youths, traders,
farmers, lawyers and workers in this strike, but there should
be no violence," the SP supremo directed the party leaders
and workers.

He said that as women were most affected, they should
actively participate in the strike.

Yadav claimed that only his party was fighting for the
cause of backward, minorities and Dalit women.

State president Akhilesh Yadav said that the proposed
strike was against both the central and state governments.
