Lucknow: In a bid to muster people`s support ahead of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections scheduled to be held early next year, Samajwadi Party would take out a rath
yatra across the state from September 12 with the message to root out the ruling BSP government.

"The Samajwadi Kranti Rath Yatra will be taken out by
party state president Akhilesh Yadav to root out corrupt BSP
government in the state," party spokesman Rajendra Chowdhury
told reporters.

He said that besides the rath yatra, Akhilesh would also
resort to cycle yatras across the state.

"Party supremo Mualyam Singh Yadav had taken out Kranti
Yatra on September 14, 1987 across the state to unite backward
classes and minorities," the spokesman said.

He claimed that the people in the state were fed up with
the present government and wanted an alternative.
