UP govt creating hurdles in Purvanchal yatra: Amar
Lucknow: Expelled Samajwadi Party leader
Amar Singh on Tuesday alleged that the Uttar Pradesh government was
creating administrative hurdles in his proposed `Purvanchal
Swabhiman Yatra` that is scheduled to take off on December
"Mayawati government is creating administrative hurdles
in the proposed yatra scheduled to start from Allahabad on
December 1 to press for the demand of formation of separate
Purvanchal state... We will start the yatra come what may," he
told reporters here.
The month-long yatra will cover about 450 kms and will
culminate at Gorakhpur.
Singh said he had invited leaders of all parties
including Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and BJP president Nitin
Gadkari to press for the cause.
"I hope to get blessings of Sonia Gandhi for the yatra.
I am myself ready to welcome Mulayam Singh Yadav, if he joins
it," he said.
He said he would also support similar yatra scheduled to
start from December 5 for formation of separate Bundelkhand
state by Raja Bundela.
About his future political plans, Singh said he would
decide about the same after the end of his yatra.
Asked about allegations that he brought industrialists
and film personalities in SP, Singh said, "I just followed
tradition started by party chief Mulayam himself."
