Transfer-posting interests them more: Mulayam

CHIEF MINISTER Mulayam Singh Yadav on Monday expressed displeasure over functioning of the Samajwadi Party district units.

He also criticised SP ministers for serving their “vested interests” and not consolidating the party’s position. Frontal organisations should also be actively involved in streamlining the district units, he added.

Addressing a conference of office-bearers of district units here, Yadav said district leaders were more interested in transfers and postings than strengthening the organisation and propagating the achievements of the government.

Laying stress on proper behaviour with officers, the chief minister said district leaders’ conduct suggested the party was in the opposition. About complaints against ministers’ indifference to party workers, Yadav said corrective measures would be taken to improve the situation. He said the interest of the workers could not be ignored in an election year.

The chief minister directed district units to organise a function to felicitate newly elected block pramukhs and panchayat members by March 25.

In view of the fluid political situation in the State, the emergency meeting was called to chalk out an action plan for assembly elections. He said that workers should be ready for polls, adding the party was passing through a crucial phase, as the Congress, the BJP and the BSP had joined hands to dislodge the government.

Yadav brushed off suggestions that the Varanasi blasts signified the failure of security agencies, saying these incidents could happen despite all precautions. “There was prior information about a possible attack on Parliament...could it be prevented,” he asked.

Expressing dissatisfaction over security arrangements, in and around Vidhan Bhawan, he said, henceforth, special passes would be issued to the Press, besides extensive checking of entrants.

Assailing the Congress for playing a destabilising game in the UP, the chief minister said it would not succeed. Party’s State unit president Ram Saran Das and PWD minister Shivpal Singh Yadav also addressed the gathering.
