The Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) youth wing has decided to file complaints against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, for his alleged involvement in irregularities in coal block allocations, in police stations across Uttar Pradesh.

Slamming the Prime Minister for his "direct role" in the faulty allocation of coal blocks, the coal block allocation, the Bharatiya Janta Yuva Morcha (BJYM) Wednesday decided "formally lodge named FIRs against Manmohan Singh".

Harish Dwivedi, BJYM state president, told IANS that they were forced to take this extreme step as "it was clear that the UPA government would not act to bring guilty to book".

BJYM workers would be filing formal complaints to lodge FIRs across districts in the state September 20. Senior leaders would be leading party workers to the police stations.

The BJP has made its stand clear on the coal block issue and has decided to "fight it out inside and outside parliament."

Senior BJP leaders led by the Lucknow MP Lalji Tandon and state president Laxmikant Bajpayi have already started their protests against the Congress by holding a rally.
