We are united on Yatra: BJP
New Delhi, Mar 13 (UNI) Condemning the attacks against BJP's 'Ekta Yatra' to be taken out by party president Rajnath Singh and his predecessor L K Advani, the party today said the vested interests had become 'nervous' and started a vicious propaganda against it.
Parliamentary Party Spokesman Vijay Kumar Malhotra said there was unity in the party on the issue and the March 16 meeting of party's national office-bearers and state units would work out finer details of the simultaneous yatras to be undertaken by these leaders.
He said all the so-called secular parties indulging in votebank politics had become nervous about the Yatra and were all against it as it would mean ending their votebanks. The BJP believed in providing justice to all and appeasement for no particular religion.
The yatras would not touch the poll-bound states, he added.
He said there were no differences in the party over the proposed yatra.
On the Court ordering the implementation of Conditional Access System (CAS), he said the Government should appeal against the judicial order keeping the interests of the consumers in mind, who could not be made to pay more for watching less. The law should be beneficial to the consumers and not operators, he said.
