WITH ANTI-INCUMBENCY haunting the ruling Samajwadi Party, moves are afoot to gear up the organisation for the big electoral battle in the state. Though the state assembly election is due in February 2007, the party has decided to come into election mode this year.
While ground realities will be assessed at district leaders’ meeting here on January 21, frontal organizations have been directed to properly mobilise youth force for a rally on January 29. The party will also assess performance of its MLAs in the next few months to make proper assessment of their constituencies.
The administrative gearing up has already started and the current round of appointments of police officers in districts and ranges is being seen in official circle as placing “right officer in right place”.
While laying stress on improving the administration, bolstering the organisation has now assumed top priority for the leadership.
After more than two years in power there has been slide in the party popularity.
Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav too had expressed his resentment over the prevailing situation in the party.
Finally, moves are afoot to stem the rot set in the organisation. Yadav’s recent comments at rallies in Auraiyya and Kanpur Dehat that the party leaders had become power hungry had already caused ripples in the organisation. Clearly seeing writings on the wall the chief minister announced he would himself have to campaign all alone for the party.
The chief minister is worried that even his senior leaders do not know about the achievements of the government during the last two years. The chief minister had publically exposed his party leaders for their failure to take the party’s message to the grass roots.
On the government level law and order continues to be a matter of concern.
The government hopes that shake-up in the police department will help in improving the situation in districts. There is a feeling in the official circle that control in crime will largely refurbishe the image of the government.
