SP decides to dissolve its state units and front organisations
Unhappy with its performance in the Lok Sabha polls, Samajwadi Party on Sunday decided to dissolve all its state units and front organisations with the aim of reorganising them.
The decision was taken at SP's Parliamentary party meeting held in New Delhi.
"The reason behind this decision is to reorganise these bodies by putting in place party leaders and workers, who have worked towards strengthening the party in the elections. Such people will be given prominence in place of non-performers," party general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav told reporters after the meeting.
The meeting unanimously elected party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav as Parliamentary party's president, who decided to dissolve its state units and front organisations in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Arunachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Bihar, Uttarakhand and Jammu and Kashmir, he said.
He said Yadav, who is empowered to take all the important decisions on behalf of the party related to Parliamentary affairs, directed the 23 newly-elected MPs of the party to take active part in debates in Parliament.
"SP has always played a positive and constructive role in the Parliament and would continue to do so. Mulayam Singh ji has directed all the new MPs to come prepared to the Parliament and take active part in all the debates," Ram Gopal Yadav said.
