LJP will prevent BSP from forming govt in UP: Paswan

Written by: Staff

Meerut, May 9 (UNI) Lok Janshakti Party chief Ram Vilas Paswan today said his party would teach the Bahujan Samaj Party a lesson and prevent it from coming to power in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls next year.

Speaking at a ''Dalit Minority Rally'' here, he accused BSP supremo Mayawati of no longer working to uplift the Dalits and appeasing the upper caste people.

Mr Paswan also endorsed the Centre's move for reservation for the scheduled castes and scheduled tribes in higher education institutions.

''There should be reservations in the private sector also,'' he added.

He compared the state's deteriorating law and order situation with Bihar.

He urged the people to vote for LJP and said that if his party came to power, it would ensure that the employment guarantee scheme would be extended to 365 days from 100 days.

He said there is 27 per cent Dalit population and 20 per cent Muslim population in the country. '' Our party is working to bring these marginalised groups into the mainstream,' he added.
