As part of the campaign, the party’s state unit has been conducting massive public rallies, seminars, poster pasting, flyer distribution and several other publicity programs to awaken the people of the failure of the ruling BJP government in the state. Party’s National President A Sayeed took a delegation to different cities in Rajasthan to meet the victims of farmers who committed suicides for the loss of their crops, families of those who were brutally lynched and burnt and extended financial aid assuring them of the legal aid from the party aimed at seeking justice.
