BJP agitation for Afzal's execution from Nov 15
Jaunpur, Oct 27: The state BJP unit today announced it would launch a vociferous movement demanding the execution of 2001 Parliament attack mastermind Mohd Afzal Guru as per the Supreme Court verdict.
Party MP and former Uttar Pradesh BJP unit president Kalraj Mishra told sources here that the movement would be launched between November 15 and 24.
''Several important decisions were taken at the party's central office-bearers' meeting chaired by national president Rajnath Singh on October 26,'' Mr Mishra added.
He informed the party would organise anti-terrorism rallies at 15 places including Ayodhya, Varanasi, Nagpur, Malegaon, Mumbai, Guwahati, Imphal, Kolkata, Koyambatore, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Jammu to press for Afzal's execution.
''A march over national security will also be held on the first day of Parliament's monsoon session,'' the BJP leader added.
Commenting on the UP civic polls, Mr Mishra said the ruling Samajwadi Party would be totally routed in these elections, while BJP would sweep the results at the hustings.
''The state government is pulling all stops to create disturbance in the local body polls, but our party has full confidence in the election commission,'' he asserted.
