UNION MINISTER and Lok Jasnshakti Party (LJP) president Ram Vilas Paswan has called upon the Dalits and Muslims to fight the next assembly elections from a single platform to dislodge the Mulayam Singh Yadav government in the state.

Declaring that Dalit-Muslim coalition was capable of ousting the SP government, he accused political parties of using people belonging to these castes for their benefit while giving them nothing in return.

Elated over the huge turn out at a public rally at the Leader Press ground in the city, he said it was clear the people were disenchanted with other political parties.

LJP, he said, was capable of providing an alternate government in the state with the backing of the two castes- Dalits and Muslims. Spelling out the aims of the party, he said it would provide unemployment, food and shelter to the people who had been till deprived till date.

The party, he said, had readied itself to contest on all the assembly seats in the State during the coming elections and had also decided to keep away from entering into any kind of understanding with the BSP, the BJP and the SP.

However, it could enter into an agreement over adjustment of seats with VP Singh’s Janmorcha and the Congress.
