Lucknow, May 12 (UNI) Amid first anniversary celebrations of Mayawati's fourth regime in Uttar Pradesh, principal opposition Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav today announced to intensify agitation against the former's 'anti-people' policies.
The former Chief Minister speaking at party's youth orgainsation meeting here said ''booth-level committees should be formed and the party's youth workers should come forward to agitate against the present government, besides spreading SP's achievements among the commanman.'' ''I myself would take part in this yet to be launched protest,'' the SP leader added.
Advising the party's youth workers to adopt 'tyag (sacrifice)' and 'saadgi (austerity),' Mr Yadav asked them to sincerely involve themselves in party's preparedness for the coming Lok Sabha elections.
Criticising the ruling Mayawati government, the SP chief said ''those, who dictate and assault people, are cowards...it cannot stand for long.'' In one year term of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) government, corruption, price rise, misutilisation of funds, bulldozing of government properties crossed all limits, he alleged.
''Besides, wastage of money, murder of innocents, crime, and anarchy is existing in the whole state, affecting commanman the most,'' Mr Yadav added.
''Traders are on the verge of destruction by the implementation of Value Added Tax (VAT),'' the SP supremo reiterated further claiming the good works that were done under this previous rule.
Unemployment allowance, Kanya Vidya Dhan, two of the schemes initiated by his previous government, would have benefitted all sections of the society, if implemented and followed properly, he added.
In the meet, a resolution was passed, in which the SP decried the BSP for razing government buildings and selling it to some industrialists.
The SP youth wing decided to aggravate their agitation against the state government for trapping their party workers in fake cases.
