Hyderabad, Jun 16 (UNI) The Opposition BJP in Andhra Pradesh, will organise a series of agitations against the Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre and the Congress Government in the state during the next fortnight to protest shortage of fertilisers and seeds, price rise and revenue-driven liquor policy of the State Government.
Announcing this at a press conference here today, BJP state President B Dattatreya said party activists would lay siege to the District Collectorates in the state on June 18 and 19 in support of farmers' demand asking the government to take immediate steps to overcome the 'acute' shortage of fertilisers and seeds.
The party would hold 'Kisan Adalat' in all the villages, 'exposing' the UPA Government's loan waiver scheme which left out a 'large number of farmers' and promising writing off of farm loans of all farmers up to Rs 50,000 if the BJP was voted to power at the Centre in the next elections, he said.
The party would spearhead 'fill the jail' (Jail Bharo) in the state on June 20 in protest against the 'total failure' of both the Governments state as well as centre to contain 'unprecedented' increase in prices of essential commodities, he said.
After promising on the eve of last Assembly elections the introduction of prohibition in phases, the Congress Government was pursuing revenue-driven excise policy to fill its coffers at the cost of the health of common man, he alleged, adding the party would intensify the stir after its women's wing state executive meet on June 21 and 22.
