BSP to protest against Centre’s policies

Attacking the Centre on its “anti-people” policies, especially the land bill, BSP chief Mayawati on wdnesday announced a two-phase agitation in UP and other states where the party has a base, starting April 27.

“It seems that altogether the ‘chal-charitra’ and ‘chehra’ of the Modi government including its policies and programmes are anti-people and in favour of capitalists,” Mayawati said, adding that the BSP will launch a nation-wide agitation to “expose” this.

In the first phase, massive protest and dharnas will be staged at all district headquarters of BSP in Uttar Pradesh from 11am on April 27, Mayawati said, adding that similar protests will be staged on May 2 in others states.

The second phase of the agitation programme will be decided based on the stand of the Central government, especially on the Land Bill, in the Budget Session resuming on April 20.
