Samajwadi Party gears up for election

Samajwadi Party (SP) virtually sounded the poll bugle in the state on Tuesday with senior party leaders addressing a series of meetings in different parts of the state in a bid to reach out to the people and to tell them about the pro-people policies adopted by the state government since it came to power.

While the chief minister Akhilesh Yadav addressed a meeting at Auraiya district, other senior leaders and ministers presided over such interactions elsewhere.

Senior SP leaders said the similar programmes would be held at block and village levels in the days to come. “The objective is to make the people aware of the developmental works undertaken by the SP government during its stint,” said the leaders.

A meeting addressed by a senior leader Rajendra Chaudhary was held at party headquarters and was attended by SP MLAs.

In his address, the CM claimed that the government had fulfilled all the promises the party had made during the last year's Assembly polls. “No government has done so much for the people,” he claimed.

The chief minister listed the achievements of his government and sought people support in the general elections scheduled to happen next year.

He asked the party leaders and workers to fan out in the villages and apprise the electorate about the steps taken by the government for their welfare. Senior SP leaders took charge of what the party termed Uplabdhi Diwas (achievement day) celebrations across the state.

SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav had earlier directed the party leaders to connect to the common voters in the state. “Though officially our election campaign is yet to begin but informally, we have started it already,” said the party leaders.

Mulayam claimed the party to have a say in the formation of Union government in 2014 if it manages to win around 50 seats from the state.
