Mandsaur, MP, Jan 23 (UNI) Bharatiya Janashakti Founder-President and former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Uma Bharti today said her party would launch a major agitation in the state on February 3 over various public problems.
''The public's attention will be drawn towards the fact that development-linked activities have come to a standstill during the Bharatiya Janata Party's tenure in this state and a deaf ear is being turned to the common man,'' the former union minister told mediapersons here.
Alleging that a large part of the state was ravaged by drought, she added that exodus of labourers had begun in several districts but the regime took no initiative for providing relief to the affected.
''The demand for a separate Bundelkhand is nothing short of cheating. That region is confronting a drought for the past three to four years. The slogan for a separate Bundelkhand is being raised to divert people's attention. Despite lack of basic infrastructure, the government is organising mega industrial investment conferences and claiming investment of several hundred crore rupees,'' Ms Bharti said.
She denied commenting on discussions regarding her re-entry into the BJP.
