"The Purvanchali people face identity problems in the city as they find it difficult to get voter identity cards besides registration of births and deaths," said a BJP statement.
The party said it would take up the issues concerning 30 lakh Purvanchali people in the "Purvanchal Sammelan" Wednesday.
The statement said, "A large section of Purvanchali people are compelled to live in unauthorised colonies as they are not able to get affordable houses. These colonies lack basic amenities like water, power, roads, sewage, etc."
