In a bid to expose the alleged criminal activities of BSP men, the Samajwadi Party has started a helpline for those being "harassed" by that party's activists.
The move comes in the wake of the recent arrest of BSP MLA Shekhar Tiwari in connection with the murder of a
PWD executive engineer at Auraiya.
"We have started the helpline at our party's Uttar Pradesh headquarters here for all those aggrieved ones from
whom BSP men are extorting money for BSP chief Mayawati," Samajwadi Party state President Shivpal Singh Yadav said today.
"Any one can call on the listed numbers and SP will ensure that party cadres will fight those who are trying to extort money," Yadav said.
The BSP which had made law and order as its poll plank in the last assembly elections is "neck deep in corruption and criminals are ruling the roost in the present regime," he alleged, adding that SP would do everything to expose the government before the people by organising meetings after collecting details from "victims of the BSP men".
Charging the Mayawati government with sheltering criminals and extorting money from people and government officers, Yadav alleged that a collection target of Rs 1000 crore has been fixed for Mayawati's birthday celebrations alone.
