Patna: The Bihar unit of BJP will stage dharna in all blocks of the state and take out a march from the party office to the Raj Bhawan on June 22 next to protest against the economic policies of the UPA government and its alleged discrimination towards Bihar.

"BJP cadres will take out a march from the party office to the Raj Bhawan on June 22 next under the leadership of the former union minister Yashwant Singh and the former Uttar Pradesh unit chief Ramapati Ram Tripathi",  state unit BJP President C P Thakur told reporters on Saturday.

The protesting BJP leadership will submit a memorandum to the Governor Devanand Konwar flaying the central economic policies that have precipitated inflation and price rise, besides its discrimination towards Bihar by rejection of the special status demand and coal linkages for power generation, he said.

The BJP workers in the districts will stage dharna at the block offices on the same day against the UPA government's economic policies, Thakur said.
