Lucknow: Former SP leader Amar Singh Thursday
said his party Rastriya Lokmach has been registered as a political party by the Election Commission and that his outfit would try to become an alternative to Mayawati and Mulayam in
Uttar Pradesh.

"We have been registered by the EC as a political party
and we will try to become an alternative to `MaMu` ( Mayawati
and Mulayam) to end their raj (misrule) in the state," Singh told reporters here while announcing 17 party candidates for the 2012 Assembly polls in UP.
Asked about possible alliance in which his party could
enter, Singh said he was open to all except BJP and SP but
nothing has been materialised yet.

"I am against BJP as it has communal agenda and due to
its opposition to separate Purvanchal state," Singh said,
adding that his party would contest all the (403) seats.

Announcing his plans to takeout a yatra from Ghaziabad
to Ghazipur from October 2, Singh said from that day he would
not return his home till Assembly elections were over.

The party will also hold "Satta Parivartan rally" in
Etawah, home district of Mulayam Singh Yadav later his month,
he said, adding a delegation of party, including him, would
visit Moradabad tomorrow to inquire about yesterday`s arson
incident in which a Deputy Inspector General was injured.
Advocating for separate Poorvanchal state, Singh said
that it was unfortunate that the region which gives 148 MLAs
and 28 MP with population of over nine crore was neglected.

"Of the Rs 40 thousand crore given by the Centre,
Mayawati had allocated only 20 crore two years back to the
entire region," Singh alleged.
