Mulayam takes lead for 2014 LS polls

'UP hamari hai, ab Dilli ki bari hai' [we already have UP and next is Delhi] is the main slogan of Samajwadi Party leaders and workers now for 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

Samajwadi Party leadership and workers are so enthused by the success of Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls and installation of young Akhilesh Yadav as chief minister that right from Mulayam Singh Yadav to ordinary workers, everybody is dreaming of an SP-led government at the centre.

Samajwadi Party has taken the lead in making preparations for Lok Sabha polls scheduled in 2014.

Significantly enough, Samajwadi Party President Mulayam Singh Yadav has announced the names of 58 observers for next Lok Sabha polls.

Since UP sends as many as 80 members to Lok Sabha, the outcome plays important role in government formation at the centre.

Samajwadi Party national president at a meeting of all the observers including MPs, MLAs and other senior leaders said that no MLA or MLC or minister would be given ticket for Lok Sabha polls.

At the same time Mulayam Singh Yadav told observers that party’s decision to announce candidates earlier in assembly proved to be beneficial.

Mulayam Singh Yadav made it clear to the observers that the party would also announce candidates for 2014 Lok Sabha polls as earliest as possible so that they can connect with the voters.

Senior Samajwadi Party members told that the party had completed the process of receiving the applications in month of May.

Enthused by the success of the party in UP Assembly polls, there was huge rush for applications this time.

During the orientation meeting of observers, Mulayam Singh Yadav asked them to cover the constituency allotted to them and submit the report to party high command. The observers for remaining 22 Lok Sabha seats would be announced soon.

The observers have been asked to study the functioning of organization at grass root level and report about fighting status of the unit.

There have been several meetings addressed by Mulayam Singh Yadav where the party supremo asked the workers to remain alert and launch counter offensive against allegations from opposition from time to time. He also asked them to inform the people about the work done by Samajwadi Party government.

Significantly enough, Akhilesh Yadav government had received promise of 45,000 crores from United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government for various projects and schemes being run in UP.

This support from UPA government would also help Mulayam Singh Yadav for implementing development plans in the state and encash the goodwill before the Lok Sabha polls.

As a part of strategy, the SP president also wrote to Muslim religious leaders thanking them for their support during assembly polls.

It would be worth mentioning here that Mulayam Singh Yadav ensured good representation to Muslims in the government as well as party forums. The SP leader is also expanding the base of his party. He has given importance to Kironmoy Nanda of West Bengal and gave him Rajya Sabha nomination. Similarly senior leaders from other states too have been given importance in party organisation.

Mulayam Singh Yadav is very keen to get as many as 50 seats in Lok Sabha to play a major role in the formation of the next government at the centre since there is every possibility of no combination getting an absolute majority.
