By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Oct 9 � Continuing with its campaign against corruption and demand for good governance, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is going to launch its Jan Chetna Yaatra-a massive public awareness programme on October 11. This movement aimed at shaping the opinion of mass people regarding the burning issues of the country will be led by senior party leader LK Advani.

Briefing mediapersons here on Sunday about the ensuing programme, national general secretary of the party Kiran Maheswari said that the Jan Chetna Yaatra will start from Bihar and cover 23 States in 40 days.

"The BJP has always been pressing for transparency and good governance and raising its voice against the rampant scams and corruption in the country. The Jan Chetna Yaatra is in continuation with our effort to fight against corruption," said Maheswari adding that all the senior leaders of the party will take part in this programme including Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj and Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley.

Coming down heavily on the UPA government, Maheswari pointed to the areas where this government has failed and said that the woes of the common people had multiplied during the tenure of the UPA.

"The Congress-led UPA has been turning a blind eye to the grievances of the common

people. It has done nothing to control the soaring prices of all essential commodities including foodgrain," said Maheswari.

It needs to be mentioned here that two North East States Assam and Arunachal Pradesh will be covered by the Jan Chetna Yaatra. As part of this Yaatra, a public rally will be held in Guwahati at Sonaram Field on October 20. Party vice president Bijoya Chakravorty has been entrusted with the responsibility of the programme here.

Talking to the media, Chakravorty said that issues specific to the North East and Assam will be highlighted during the Jan Chetna Yaatra here. The issue of land transfer to Bangladesh will also come up and pamphlets highlighting the numerous scams and problems of the State will be distributed amongst the people.

A meeting of the State BJP was held today to discuss the preparation for the Jan Chetna Yaatra and it was attended by Maheswari.
