SP accuses UP Govt of harassing party workers
Lucknow: Samajwadi Party state president
Akhilesh Yadav today accused the BSP government of harassing
party workers in a bid to foil the party-sponsored bandh
against the price rise issue.
"A large number of SP leaders and workers have been
arrested by police since last night on the directives of the
state government in a bid to crush general strike call given
by the SP tomorrow," Yadav alleged.
"There is an undemocratic government in the state,
which on the one hand is staging a drama of launching an
agitation and on the other, crushing democratic rights of the
Opposition," he said.
Yadav said that all the district units were directed
to ensure successful strike against price rise and rampant
corruption in the state.
"But the BSP government is attacking rights of the
people. Fearing success of SP`s agitation it has unleashed
administrative terrorism," he claimed.
