BSP to celebrate its silver jubilee on Kanshiram's b'day



Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Monday said the BSP would celebrate 25th anniversary of its foundation on the birth anniversary of its founder Kanshiram on March 15.

"The party, which came into existence on April 14, 1984 completed 25 years last year, but the party could not celebrate silver jubilee due to Lok Sabha and assembly elections in some states," Mayawati told reporters here.

She said now the party has decided to celebrate its 25th foundation day on the birth anniversary of BSP founder Kanshiram on March 15 in Lucknow.

"As part of its silver jubilee celebration the party will also organise a massive national rally in the state capital at Ramabai ground on the same day," she said.

During the rally, two special bulletins on the party and its founder Kanshiram would also be released, Mayawati said.

"A film depicting life struggle of Kanshiramji would be screened so that the party workers should take inspiration and complete his unfulfilled work," she said.

Attacking the Congress, the chief minister alleged that the party which ruled the country and states for several years did nothing for the upliftment of the downtrodden, backwards, and religious minorities.

Other parties also adopted a similar attitude, she added.
