Rajnath to launch Bharat Surakhya Yatra from Puri
Bhubaneswar, Mar 22 (UNI) BJP General Secretary Vijaya Goel today announced that party President Rajnath Singh will launch the ''Bharat Surakhya yatra'' from the holy city of Puri after seeking blessings from Lord Jagannath on April Six next.
Mr Goel, who chaired a preparatory meeting of the district office -bearers of the party for the smooth journey of the yatra, told newsmen that the yatra would expose the appeasement policy of the Congress-led UPA government to divide the nation and failure to check the unbridled terrorism in the country.
He claimed that there would be tremendous response to the yatra as the common people have started realising that the UPA government was trying to appease the minority community, particularly the Muslims for vote bank politics.
Mr Goel said the Bharat Surakhya Yatra to be launched by both Mr Rajnath Singh and Mr L K Advani on April 6 would be virtually a war against the UPA government.
He said Mr Singh would cover 12 states during his 35-day-long yatra, which would conclude in Delhi on May 10 next. The Yatra he said would start from Puri on April six and enter Chhatishgarh on April 8 and then proceed to Jharkhand, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Uttaranchal, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Rajhasthan and Haryana before reaching Delhi.
The BJP president, he said, would address hundreds of roadside public meetings during the yatra to reach the message to the people about the dangerous policy pursued by the UPA government to divide the nation.
In Orissa, Mr Singh, he said, would cover Puri, Bhubaneswar, Cuttack, Dhenkanal, Khuntuni and Talcher on April six. He would then address a series of meetings on April 7 at Rengali,Khamar,Barkot, Rourkela.
On April 8, the BJP president would cover Rourkela,Jharsugura and Brajarajnagar before entering into Chatisgarh. During his three day Yatra in Orissa, Mr Singh would address as many as 13 public meetings.
