Mayawati holds meeting to strengthen base in country
Lucknow, Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati on Sunday held a meeting of office bearers to deliberate upon the ways and means of expanding the party's base in the country.
During the meeting, held at the state office of the party here, Ms Mayawati asked party workers to observe the death anniversary of architect of the Constitution Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar (December 6) at a large scale.
In this state capital, people will pay their tributes at the historic Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar Samajik Parivartan Sthal, which was built by the BSP, while people in other parts of the state will pay their tributes to Babasaheb in their respective areas, BSP said in a statement.
An appeal was made at the meeting to make the programme a grand success, the statement added.
At the meeting, deliberations were held and instructions issued to increase the party's voter base in the country. Discussions on the current political scenario in the country were also held.
Along with discussions on the recent political developments in Maharashtra, the meeting also discussed the Assembly elections in Jharkhand and the upcoming Assembly elections in Delhi.
"There is a vast difference between the words and deeds of the government. This is very dangerous for the public interest," the statement said.
Referring to the GST and demonetisation, Ms Mayawati said, "GST and demonetisation were imposed upon the country in a hurried and an immature manner, and it is the result of this that there is economic slowdown and widespread unemployment in the country. This has affected the normal life in the country."
"BJP, like Congress, has made the lives of over 125 crore people of this country miserable in every way and it is a serious cause of concern. The birthday of BSP chief Mayawati, which falls on January 15, will be celebrated as 'Jankalyankaari Diwas','' the statement added.
