It will be a litmus test for the resurrected Samajwadi Janata Dal when it stages its first demonstration against a formidable BJP-led NDA government in Delhi on December 22. How much heat it generates will decide the future course of action for the former Janata Party constituents.
Apart from the protest at Jantar Mantar, SP's five members in LS and 15 in RS will also oppose NDA for `not fulfilling its pre-election promises and siding with the corporate and business houses only'.
The SP chief, who heads the newly-formed front, is busy with the leaders of its various constituents and its national general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav is holding meetings with the MPs to decide the strategy for the planned protests in both Houses.This is the first major show by the SP after Lok Sabha elections in which it lost all ground to the BJP .
The SJD has given a call for protest against the NDA government for its `failures to fulfill its promises The front is a loose formation of six political parties--Samajwadi Party , Janata Dal (United), Rashtriya Janata Dal, Janata Dal (Secular), Rashtriya Samajwadi Party and Rashtriya Lok Dal.
If Mulayam and Ram Gopal are busy preparing for the showdown in Delhi, chief minister Akhilesh Yadav, who is also SP's state president, is busy in motivating the rank and file to march to Delhi on December 22 to make an impressive show.
