"The day will be celebrated as 'Jan Kalyankari Divas' all over the country. In Uttar Pradesh, programmes will be held at district level to extend help the poor and needy," BSP said in a press release here.

The next edition of the book written by Mayawati 'A travelogue of my struggle-ridden life and BSP movement' and the party calendar will also be launched that day, it said.

The BSP President who today convened a meeting of senior party leaders and office-bearers and reviewed the preparations for Jan Kalyankari Divas, said help is extended to the poor and needy of Sarva Samaj (all castes) on this day every year as social responsibility and asked them to make it a success.

The party chief said it was all the more imperative to help the poor and needy because of the feeling of helplessness arising out of the 'irresponsibile and insensitive attitude' of the SP government.

Today's meeting of party leaders is being viewed as an exercise by the party chief to gear up the organsaition for the 2017 assembly polls.
