As the government releases its Economic Survey and presents the Union Budget this week, BJP will hold protest demonstrations in Uttar Pradesh against price rise and the "scam" it alleged was responsible for it.

"When the government releases the Economic Survey and presents the Union Budget on February 25 and 26 respectively, BJP will hold massive protest demonstrations in Lucknow, capital of the most populous state of Uttar Pradesh.

"The party is launching a scathing and aggressive campaign against the UPA government's failure to control price
rise and its massive scam," BJP Vice-President Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.

He described the increase in prices of essential commodities as "the biggest scam in Indian democracy".

Senior party leaders Rajnath Singh, Murli Manohar Joshi, Vinay Katiyar, Kalraj Mishra, besides Naqvi will participate
in the campaign.

"Congress leaders, including Rahul Gandhi, never talk about price rise and the steps being taken to control it, when
they visit Uttar Pradesh," Naqvi said.
