Chandigarh, Oct 19 (UNI) In an effort to break the myth that the BSP ''is a party of only certain sections of society'', a massive 'Sarv Samaj Bhaichara Banao' 'maha-sammelan' will be organised at Ludhiana on November 17, party general secretary in-charge of Punjab Narinder Kashyap said today.

The conference would be addressed by BSP chief and UP Chief Minister Mayawati. It would mark the launching of the the party's social engineering campaign in Punjab, the home state of its founder leader late Kanshi Ram, Mr Kashyap said.

'' After UP, we want to give a message to all our Punjabi brethren that the BSP is a party of all and for all and its doors are open to all sections of society'', he told at a press conference here.

The conference would be the biggest of its kind in Punjab, he said, adding a number of former ministers, MPs and MLAs of other political parties, particularly those belonging to the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and the Congress would join the BSP at the conference.

Admitting that due to various reasons, the BSP was not able to expand its base in Punjab particularly among the upper caste voters, Mr Kashyap said the Ludhiana conference would make the party acceptable to all castes in the border state.
