In a statement issued here, the SP president further alleged that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was a party of “conspirators” and an “expert” in communalising atmosphere.

“It’s the responsibility of all the SP workers to make the people aware of the BJP’s conspiracies and expose them. BJP has ruined the country,” he said.

“While farmers are suffering… GST and demonetisation have adversely affected traders and youths who could not get jobs,” he added.

He asked the party workers to remain active on booths and ensure the BJP’s defeat in the Lok Sabha polls.
