Lucknow: Samajwadi Party is gearing up to take its agitation against corruption and lawlessness under the Maywati government to the villages. SP workers will visit villages across the state on March 17 and reveal the atrocities of BSP under Chief Minister Mayawati on the people.

Samajwadi party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav made the announcement during a meeting of party legislators and leaders on Saturday. The announcement of the agitation to be held has raised the chances of clash between the two parties again.

Yadav told his party legislators that despite Mayawati’s effort to crush the party’s agitation, they have been brave enough to face police brutality in cities.

All agog with its recent success of the three-day protest against the Mayawati government, the SP leadership now wants to continue the success story. Therefore, it has decided to hold one-day agitation on March 17. 

Later addressing a press conference, party state president Akhilesh Yadav and leader of Opposition in the state assembly Shivpal Singh Yadav said they would approach Human Rights Commission against the atrocities by the Lucknow police to crush their three-day agitation and register a case against the DIG in court.

Shivpal Yadav, however, ruled out any alliance with the Congress prior to the 2012 elections.
