bharat band or any other state band is not the solution to solve the problem.how can we think for strikes or the country band.the country’s already people already facing poverty and on top these political parties which do promises on the time of the votes that they’ll work for the aam aadmi.are they doing the favour to the aam aadmi by band.don’t know how they pass their time in this critical time.my friends find the better solution of the problem.i think behanji mayawati is the best solution .she got the capability to sort out the country’s problem.
Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leaders Tuesday called on the people to help make party chief and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati the prime minister, asserting that only she could bring down prices and tackle the other crises facing the country.
BSP staged protests against rising prices at each of the 71 district headquarters across the state.
Addressing a rally here to mark the BSP’s protest against the United Progressive Alliance government’s failure to contain rising prices, state multi-portfolio minister Naseemuddin Siddiqui claimed that Mayawati alone was the answer to all ills faced by the country.
“While we urge the central government to roll back the prices of petrol and petroleum products, we must also resolve here today to herald Behen Mayawati as the country’s next prime minister, because she is the only leader who has the mettle to check and curb price rise,” he said.
“I am confident that with Mayawati at the helm of affairs, the nation would not find it difficult to tide over many a crises facing us,” he claimed.
While Siddiqui led the demonstration in Lucknow, other BSP ministers and prominent party leaders were detailed to lead similar demonstrations in their respective areas of influence.
No violence was reported from any part of the state during the protest.

Allahabad, July 6 (ANI): Activists and supporters of the ruling Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) staged a rally in Allahabad on Tuesday to blame Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government for the steep price of essential commodities.
The demonstrators held public meetings on the roadside and raised slogans against the Congress-led government at the Centre and criticised the economic policies of the government.
Protestors also criticised the Centre’s failure to curb inflationary trends which are affecting the general public.
The protest, however, remained peaceful. It didn’t cause any disruption to normal life. Some of the protestors acted like beggars to draw Centre’s attention to common’s man actual condition.
‘By begging, we wanted to show that most of the people in India are very poor. If the Central government suddenly raises price of petroleum products especially kerosene, the BPL (below poverty line) card holders or the people who are just above poverty line, will have no choice left other than begging,’ said Harsh Vardhan Vajypayee, a local leader of BSP, Allahabad.
Reportedly, elsewhere in the state, senior party leaders and ministers attended the protest rallies in their respective constituencies.
It may be recalled that recently, the government raised the price of petrol by rupees 3.73 and diesel by rupees 2 per litre. (ANI)

BSP stages protest in U.P. against fuel price hike
Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) on Tuesday staged a protest at all the district headquarters in Uttar Pradesh and accused the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government at the Centre of making the life of the common man more miserable.
The BSP’s agitation was described as a “resounding success” by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and party president Mayawati.
In a press release, Ms. Mayawati blamed the Centre for the soaring inflation and said the increase in the prices of diesel, petrol, kerosene and LPG cylinders had been made to benefit oil companies. The misery and plight of the common man did not figure in the UPA government’s scheme of things, she said.
Instead of decontrolling the petrol prices and reducing the subsidy on LPG cylinders, taxes on petro products should have been reduced. According to her, the Centre was responsible for the unprecedented increase in the prices of food grains and essential commodities.
“The Central government lacked the political will to control inflation,” Ms. Mayawati said.
