However, UP Police claimed that the party leaders didn't take permission for the march, however, a designated route was assigned to them for the procession, but they refused to take it.
During the march, the party MLAs and MLCs raised issues of unemployment, price rise, crime against women, and poor law and order situation in the state.
SP's chief spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary had earlier notified of the said march on Sunday. He had said the march will begin at the SP office and will pass through Raj Bhavan and the Gandhi statue located near the General Post Office before culminating at the Vidhan Bhavan.
