"It seems that altogether the 'chal-charitra' and 'chehra' of the Modi government including its policies and programmes are anti-people and in favour of capitalists," party president Mayawati told reporters here, adding, BSP will launch a nation-wide agitation to "expose" this.
In the first phase, massive protest and dharnas will be staged at all district headquarters of BSP in Uttar Pradesh from 11 AM on April 27, Mayawati said, adding that similar protests will be staged on May 2 in others states of the country where the party has its base.
"Dharna will be staged on three main issues - the anti- farmer land bill, neglect by the Centre and state governments of the farmers facing hardships due to rain and hailstorm, bad law and order situation in the state during the three years rule of SP government and their mere announcement of projects in the name of development," she said.
The second phase of the agitation programme will be decided based on the stand of the Central government, especially on the Land Bill, in the Budget Session resuming on April 20.
The BSP supremo said that she will be holding a meeting of party workers today and tomorrow to give instructions on making the agitation programme a success.
