Paralyse govt so that Maya is forced to quit like Hosni: Yadav
Mulayam Singh Yadav on Saturday told his partymen to launch an agitation to "paralyse" the functioning of the Uttar Pradesh government for three days starting from March 1.
Gorakhpur: Alleging corruption, atrocities
and autocracy in his political rival BSP`s regime, SP supremo
Mulayam Singh Yadav on Saturday told his partymen to launch an
agitation to "paralyse" the functioning of the Uttar Pradesh
government for three days starting from March 1.
"Paralyse the working of the government completely on
March 1, 2 and 3 on the issues of corruption, atrocities,
autocracy and the agitation should be such that (Chief
Minister) Mayawati is forced to step down like Egypt`s
President Hosni Mubarak has been forced to," he told his party
workers on the last day of the SP state-level convention.
He, however, asked the party workers that the agitation
should not be violent and there should be no loss to the
private or public properties.
"The focus of the agitation would be `manenge bhi nahi
aur marenge hi bhi nahi (Neither will we accept not will we
resort to violence)," Yadav said giving a call for a "fierce
agitation" against the government. He said the agitation
should not be such in which workers become content on being
arrested and later released from custody.
"The agitation should be something which shakes the
corrupt and autocratic government," he said while directing
the district units to prepare for the programme.
Calling upon the youths and students to come forward and
participate in the agitation, the SP supremo said that current
situation was worse as compared to the period when socialist
leader Jai Prakash Narain launched a movement.
"JP movement, which initially included youths and
students and was later joined by more common people, forced an
influential leader like Indira Gandhi to step down and she
even lost the elections," he said.
Yadav said the time has come to take some decision to
protect the interests of farmers, the poor, youths, women and
weaker sections. "In Aligarh, a junior engineer was killed and
his daughter was jailed when she attempted to lodge a
complaint with the Chief Minister. In Banda, a girl was raped
by a BSP MLA and she was later put behind bars," he said.
Yadav alleged that Mayawati was the wealthiest leader in
the country having maximum property.
"There is such an autocracy in the state that if a person
attempts to raise his voice he is jailed," he alleged adding
that in case of independent MLA Raghuraj Pratap Singh even the
High Court made observations against the police while granting
bail to MLC Akshay Pratap Singh.
"Is there any morality left in the government? If there
would have been any morality, the CM should have resigned
immediately," he said. The SP supremo said that the Centre and
the Governor should have interfered in this case and should
have dismissed the government on this basis.
Asking partymen to settle their internal differences
ahead of the assembly polls due next year, he said, "I am
confident that we will form the next government in the state
if there is unity." He said when party was targeting Lucknow
and Delhi, workers and leaders were fighting with each other.
