To check illegal collections of funds by BSP activists in the name of
celebrating party chief and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mayawati's
birthday, strict measures have been taken by the party leadership. The
BSP leadership has decided that measures would be taken so that no
trader or government
official is harassed and extorted for these celebrations.

Last year, cases of such collections had embarrassed the state government.

However, the chief minister's birthday (January 15) will be celebrated
in every district headquarters, but the collection of funds in the
name of donation to the party will be strictly prohibited.

According to sources in BSP, the administrative and police officers of
the districts have been directed to pass immediate information to
zonal BSP coordinators if they found any party activist or leader
involved in collecting or demanding money.

It has been also decided to put the cellphones of BSP leaders and
elected representatives on surveillance so that such cases are
promptly dealt, they said.

Those found involved in such corrupt practices will be immediately
terminated from the party and legal action would be taken, they added.

All the zonal coordinators, who are also in-charge of the celebrations
in their respective districts, have been instructed that they pass
this message to all BSP workers.
