Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) will now look for local state leaders to lead the party in future elections.
Accepting that bringing ministers and legislators from Uttar Pradesh to work in Delhi elections did not help much, senior BSP leaders laid emphasis on “identifying and grooming” local leaders for improving the party’s base in the Capital.
Evaluating its performance in the recently concluded assembly elections, the party leadership observed that there were fewer senior people in the party organisation who could connect to the electorate.
The party also appointed Chander Pal Singh, who contested from the Kondli assembly seat in the assembly elections, as one of the two persons in-charge for Delhi.
Disappointed on winning just two seats, BSP national general secretary Naseemuddin Siddiqui also asked its candidates to submit individual poll analysis in their respective assembly constituencies, listing detailed reasons for their failure, a party insider said.
Contesting on 70 assembly seats in Delhi for the first time, the BSP managed to win two.
