Fight against BSP to continue in UP: Shivpal
Lucknow, Nov 4 (UNI) Terming the Mayawati led-Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) government in Uttar Pradesh as 'anti-people,' the newly appointed Samajwadi Party (SP) state unit acting president Shivpal Singh Yadav today said 'our fight with the government will continue.' ''The CM is only working with a feeling of revenge...I will not take back my steps in this fight against BSP and would even go jail, if need arises,'' Mr Yadav said in a press meet here after arriving this evening from a three day party workers meet in Meerut.
Denouncing the Mayawati government for spending huge sums on idol installations in the state, the SP leader clamied, ''it is all wastage of money that belongs to a comman man.'' ''Our party is not against installations of idols, but against breaking the old to install new ones,'' he observed.
Highlighting the upward trend of crime graph, Mr Yadav claimed ''the increasing incidents of loot, murder and abduction is a testimony to the fact that Ms Mayawati has failed to maintain law and order in the state.'' ''Even the proposed Uttar Pradesh Organised Crime Control Act (UPOCCA) bill is being brought with an intention to harass the SP workers,'' he said.
The party would soon stage a protest outside Raj Bhawan against this autocratic behaviour of Ms Mayawati, the SP leader warned.
