Lucknow, Jul 17 (UNI) Uttar Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today said the party will not have any poll alliance in the state for the coming Lok Sabha polls for which preparations were in full swing.
The party has also announced a series of rallies and camps of all the polling booth level committees to prepare BJP workers for the election.
State BJP president Rampati Ram Tripathi in a press conference here today said the party will contest all the 80 seats of Lok Sabha in the state on the issue of prevailing corruption, criminalisation of politics and the communal castist and opportunist attitude of the Congress, Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) at the Centre and the state.
Claiming that both the SP and BSP have lost moral courage to fight against corruption and other evils, Mr Tripathi said while the SP had left the ideology of Ram Manohar Lohia by joining hands with the Congress, BSP chief Mayawati, herself is involved in grave corrupt practises.
''The use of criminal and money power by the Congress and its allies before the July 22 confidence votes proves that these parties were violating all constitutional and democratic norms to stay in power,'' he said.
Mr Tripathi also criticised the Mayawati government in the state for its biased move of neglecting the government susbidy to the 257 Sanskrit schools in the state, while providing government financial grant to the Madarsas.
Describing the party's poll preparations, he said the BJP will hold nine rallies at Varanasi, Ghaziabad, Meerut, Agra, Aligarh, Moradabad, Bareilly, Gonda and Gorakhpur between August 28 to October 15. While the first two rallies will be held at Varanasi and Ghaziabad on August 28 and September 2 respectively, dates for the remaining rallies would be announced later on.
BJP PM candidate Lal Krishna Advani, BJP president Rajnath Singh and other senior leaders are likely to participate in these rallies which will be a run-up to the Lok Sabha poll.
He said from August 9 to 23, party would hold agitations on price hike, power shortage and law and order problem from block to district level in the state. The party workers will also stage protest on the roads against the corruption and misrule of the state and the Centre.
Special camps to make aware booth committee members in all the 80 Lok Sabha seats would also be held between August 15 and October 15 where senior central party leaders will address these camps.
