FATEHABAD, Aug 28 - The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) today staged a dharna and held demonstration here against what it called "anti-people policies" of the state as well as the Central Government. A large number of BSP workers led by Mr Aman Kumar Nagra, state president, assembled at the local Ambedkar Park today. They sat on dharna which was addressed by Mr Nagra and senior leaders of the district unit.

Mr Nagra termed the Haryana government as anti-people and anti-poor. He alleged the government was only working for the benefit of privileged few and the common people were suffering due to the "misdeeds" of the government. He said while the rich and the influential persons were grabbing the government land with impunity, rehris- walas and slum-dwellers were being uprooted in the name of anti-encroachment drives of the government. He alleged the unemployment had reached at an all-time high and the government had failed to fulfil its promises of providing employment to the unemployed youths. Mr Nagra accused the government of being insensitive to people's woes. He said that in the name of waiving octroi, the government had imposed a number of new taxes on its residents.

The BSP leader also accused the Central Government of being inefficient and anti-people.

The party submitted a memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner in which the party demanded the dismissal of the state government as it has failed to deliver goods.
