BSP sets date for first rally after loss

After suffering a shocking defeat in the assembly election six month back in March, the ousted BSP has announced its first public outing by holding a rally on 9 October on the occasion of the death anniversary of party's founder president Kanshiram.

The proposed rally assumes significance as it will provide an opportunity to judge the response of the core vote bank of the blue brigade during the time of crisis which the party is  going thorugh after remaining in power for five consecutive  years.

As was expected after being ousted from the power, the BSP supremo spent most of her time in the national capital and got herself elected to the Rajya Sabha after resigning from the membership of the Legislative Council. Meanwhile she assigned the job of the Leader of the Opposition in the Lesgilative Assembly and Legislative Council to Swami Prasad Maurya and Naseemuddin Siddiqui respectively. She also effected change in the state leadership and removing Swami Prasad Maurya, appointed Ram Achal Rajbhar as the state party president.

During the the first six month after its ouster from power, the BSP did little to leave any impression as the principal opposition party and its decision to remain away from the local urban body election on party symbol also did not help it either to register its presence as main opposition. It is being reported that BSP supremo has directed her close lieutenants to reorganise the party organisation across the state and bring back those who left the party during the assembly election or before that.
