Alleging that the ruling BSP had lost connect with its committed
support base of Dalits, Janta Dal (United) chief, Sharad Yadav said on
Friday that the industrial groups owned by JP and Ponty Chaddha were
running the government in UP.

The JD (U) leader reached here to lead the poll campaign of his party
spoke to party workers in state capital and said that Chief Minister
Mayawati had handed over nine percent of agricultural land in the
state to various industrial houses at cheaper rates which was likely
to cause food crisis in the country.

"The treatment that farmers, who were protesting forced acquisitions
and their displacement, got from the state government has only proved
that it was being run by two major industrial houses owned by the JP
and liquor baron Ponty Chaddha," he said.

Stressing that the people of the state had got an oppurtune moment to
dislodge the anti-farmer and corrupt government, Sharad Yadav exhorted
workers to launch an aggressive poll campaign aimed at exposing the
corrupt practices and other misdeeds of the ministers of Mayawati

Expressing concern over lack of issues in this election, the JD (U)
chief said that after the release of the party's election manifesto in
the next two days the issues will be fasttracked in the campaign as it
was no ordinary election. "The election in UP was ultimately to be
taken as semi-final to next Lok Sabha polls," said Yadav.

Targeting at the Congress for making tall claims in it vision
document, Yadav said taht instead making new promises, the Congress
should first tell people what happened to its older promises like
'Garibi Hatao' while it has single handedly ruled the country for the
longest time.

Taking a dig at Congress's achievement of extending quota to
minorities out of OBC quota, Yadav said that the party has been using
reservation as a ploy to divide people. "In fact it have always been
anti-reservation, reflected in large number posts in central services
lying vacant for long which were to be filled through quota," said he.
Stressing the irrigation and erratic power supply were the biggest
issues of UP, Yadav said that the JD(U) was contesting polls to become
an effective alternative to the political parties who are sidelining
real issues.

Emphasizing on the image and back ground of party candidates, he asked
workers to point out if any one with criminal background had succeeded
in getting election ticket from the party. Meanwhile, JP Singh, a
candidate from Kundarki was expelled from the party as charges of
extortion against him were found to be true.
