Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Thursday evening will address a rally at Chandigarh with the slogan ‘Sanvidhaan Bachaao, Aarakshan Bachaao’.

The rally is being organised to pay homage to BSP founder, late Kanshi Ram, on his birth anniversary.

According to a senior BSP leader stationed in Delhi, party workers and leaders from Chandigarh, Punjab and Haryana will be attending the rally.

The rally has become a matter of discussion in political arena as major announcements for a ‘grand coalition’ can be called by the BSP supremo.

The BSP rally has gained importance as Samajwadi Party (SP) with help of Mayawati’s support bagged the two high-profile Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday which had been won by a margin over 3 lakhs in 2014 by Adityanath and his deputy, Keshav Prasad Maurya.

In the rally, it is believed BSP will raise pro-Dalit issues like reservation, abolished government jobs meant for Dalits and atrocities against the marginalised.
