Expressing satisfaction over people's response to Jan Morcha Alliance (JMA) march from Deoria to Dadri, the convenor Raj Babbar said that resentment was brewing in both rural and urban areas against the Mulayam Singh Yadav government in the state.
Talking to Hindustan Times on Saturday Babbar said results of local bodies had further exposed the ruling Samajwadi Party. Babbar, who addressed a gathering in Deoband on Friday, said the minority community was completely disenchanted with the SP. He said people were hankering for change in the state and the JMA had provided a platform to them. Babbar said there was also an unprecedented response of the people during the march in "Yadav bastion" consisting of Auariya, Etawah, Mainpuri, Etah districts.
He said the last phase of Dadri march from Barielly would commence after the winter session of Parliament. Babbar said the Deoband rally had given ample indication about the JMA's rising graph in the minority community.
Babbar said that the developmental scenario was grim in the state. The slogan of "Uttam Pradesh" had proved a farce, Babbar said and added the law and order situation had been worsening. Babbar said had the state government taken care of developmental activities and genuinely looked after the problems of the people there would not have been demand of either a separate Poorvanchal or Bundelkhand state. He said Bundelkhand had been facing acute drought crisis and there was even the massive problem of drinking water. Babbar said the Yadav government had failed to solve them. He said while criminals were calling shots in the government, industrialists had been running the show at the top. "The government was captive of capitalists and dalals", Babbar commented.
Calling upon the people to overthrow the Samajwadi Party-led Government and install farmers' friendly government in the state, he said the fight launched from Dadri would continue till the farmers got justice.
