Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Monday said the BSP
would celebrate 25th anniversary of its foundation on the birth
anniversary of its founder Kanshiram on March 15.

"The party, which came into existence on April 14, 1984 completed 25
years last year, but the party could not celebrate silver jubilee due
to Lok Sabha and assembly elections in some states," Mayawati told
reporters here.

She said now the party has decided to celebrate its 25th foundation
day on the birth anniversary of BSP founder Kanshiram on March 15 in

"As part of its silver jubilee celebration the party will also
organise a massive national rally in the state capital at Ramabai
ground on the same day," she said.

During the rally, two special bulletins on the party and its founder
Kanshiram would also be released, Mayawati said.

"A film depicting life struggle of Kanshiramji would be screened so
that the party workers should take inspiration and complete his
unfulfilled work," she said.

Attacking the Congress, the chief minister alleged that the party
which ruled the country and states for several years did nothing for
the upliftment of the downtrodden, backwards, and religious

Other parties also adopted a similar attitude, she added.
