Lucknow, Sep 19 (UNI) Alleging that Mayawati government was adopting undemocratic means, Samajwadi party (SP) supremo and former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav today called upon the party workers and supporters to launch protest against the state government in the wake of dismissals of policemen and ban on student union elections.
He assured the dismissed policemen of state police and PAC that they would be re-appointed and ban on the student union elections would be lifted if SP government cames to power in the state.
Addressing the party's youth wing leaders and workers under the banner of 'Chatrasangh Bachao Sangharsh Samiti' at the party headquarters here, Mr Yadav said had the people supported the SP in the Assembly polls such situation could not have arisen.
''Now work for the total support of the party and ensure at least 60 seats in the ensuing Lok Sabha polls,only then the entire situation could be changed in the state'', he asked the workers.
Mr Yadav lambasted the government for banning the students union poll saying that it was an effort to weaken the democratic structure of the country. ''If student union elections could be held in other states then why it could not be in UP'', he questioned.
Later SP youth wing leader and MP Akhilesh Yadav flagged off a march of the Sangharsh Samiti. The march assembled at Patel statue where several SP leaders addressed the workers to stage a decisive agitation against the government for banning the students union election and dismissal of policemen in the state.
The representatives of the sangharsh samiti also submitted a memorandum to Governor T V Rajeswar through the district administration in this regard.
