EXPRESSING SATISFACTION over people’s response to Jan Morcha Alliance (JMA) march from Deoria to Dadri, convenor Raj Babbar said resentment was brewing in both rural and urban areas against the Mulayam Singh Yadav Government.
Talking to Hindustan Times on Saturday, Babbar said results of local bodies poll 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 a change in the State and the JMA had provided a platform to them.
Babbar said there was also unprecedented response of the people during the march in the ‘Yadav bastions’ of Aurriya, Etawah, Mainpuri and Etah. The last phase of the Dadri march would commence after the winter session of Parliament from Barielly, he added.
Babbar said the Deoband rally had given ample indication about the JMA’s rising graph in minority community.
Babbar said the slogan of ‘Uttam Pradesh’ had proved to be a farce. Had the State Government taken care of developmental activities the demand for Poorvanchal or Bundelkhand would not have come up, he added.
He said Bundelkhand had been facing acute drought and potable water shortage. Babbar said the UP 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. “Capitalists and dalals held the government captive,” Babbar commented.
Calling upon the people to overthrow the Samajwadi Party-led Government and install a farmer-friendly regime in the State, he said the fight launched from Dadri would continue till the farmers got justice.
