NEW DELHI: Latching on to the Mathura incident, where over two dozen persons who were illegally occupying government land were killed, the BJP has identified the emotional issue of land to start his election campaign in Uttar Pradesh. A day after BJP president Amit Shah during his rally in braj area of the state asked people to write to his party on about their land illegally occupied, the BJP released an email id for this initiative.

Sources said the party hopes to connect with the people of the state, particularly the dalits and downtrodden, by promising them to free their land from illegal encroachment. This initiative was also an attack on the ruling Samajwadi party for its “inability to tackle law and order situation” in the state, and on the other hand to counter Mayawati-led BSP’s reach within the dalit community.

The email id '' was launched to help receive complaints against encroachment and land grabbing on public and private land anywhere in the state.

Shah in his speech on Tuesday had attacked Akhilesh Yadav government for allegedly aiding "land grabbings" in the state and providing protection to the goons behind such activities and land mafia. He had said that his party will launch the agitation by forcing the authorities to get the encroached land freed.

"My party in the state will launch an email service where public can complain against any kind of encroachment or land grabbing. Even before the government, out party workers will act on the complaints and get the land freed of encroachments. We will force the DM and SP to take action against such grabbings and encroachments and getting the land freed," Shah had said.
