Mulayam asks ZP chiefs to strengthen party
CHIEF MINISTER Mulayam Singh Yadav today called upon the newly elected Samajwadi Party-supported chairpersons of zila panchayats to strengthen the party at the grassroots level. Yadav said they would have to play vital role in the next Assembly elections.
Addressing a meeting of chairpersons here on Tuesday, Yadav said each chairman would have to ensure victory of one party candidate in the Assembly poll.
The party had won 48 seats of chairpersons of zila panchayats earlier this month. Yadav said chairpersons should gear up for assembly poll without any delay.
SP general secretary Amar Singh, State party chief Ramsaran Das, Panchayat Raj Minister Balram Yadav and MP Akhilesh Yadav also hailed the chairpersons on their victory.
The chief minister said the party had won large number of zila panchayat seats because of its proper electoral strategy. Laying stress on clean image, Yadav said chairpersons were first citizens in their districts and they should live up to the expectations of the people. He said the people should not feel neglected and complain against the zila panchayat chiefs.
The chief minister stressed on keeping the party image clean and ensuring speedy development.
Yadav said development of the rural areas was the responsibility of the chairpersons and they should perform their job without fear and favour to keep the SP flag flying.
The Chief Minister said the party’s resounding victory was largely due to the party’s unity in the election.
He said zila panchayat results had effectively refuted the Opposition propaganda that SP was losing ground in the State.
