Harit Pradesh may become reality before Lok Sabha polls: Ajit


Mathura, Aug 01: With the Centre giving its nod to the formation of separate Telangana state, the Rashtriya Lok Dal on Wednesday expressed hope that its demand for Harit Pradesh will also be met before the coming Lok Sabha elections.

"For Harit Pradesh, united efforts and consistent struggle is required. We however hope that Harit Pradesh will become a reality before (2014) Lok Sabha elections," Union Minister and RLD national chief Ajit Singh said here.


Speaking at the two-day working committee meeting of his party, Singh called upon people to get ready for an agitation for Harit Pradesh, noting that Telangana is the outcome of continuous struggle of the people.

He also criticised the functioning of Samajwadi Party government in Uttar Pradesh. "While previous (BSP) government was working on PPP that is private-public participation, present government is working on CCC that is cash, caste and criminal basis," Singh alleged.

He further alleged that the law and order situation of the state is miserable and due to this, the industrial growth is not picking up pace. "With the absence of industries, youth are not getting employment," the Union minister added.
