Manifesto promises will be fulfilled: Mulayam

SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav said his government will fulfil the promises made in the election manifesto.

Lucknow: Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh
Yadav on Thursday said his government will fulfil the promises made
in the election manifesto in spite of the state`s "resource
crunch" caused by the "previous Mayawati government".

"Due to the previous BSP regime, the state government is
facing resource crunch. It did nothing to increase
revenue...", Yadav said, addressing party workers here.

Despite this, the state government will increase resources
and meet its promises, he said.

"You all will not have to come to Lucknow to get your work
done. Such an arrangement would be made that there will be
timely action on applications. You can also ask your CM on
when your work will be completed," Yadav said.

Yadav said he did not become chief minister as by
remaining outside, "I will keep an eye on government`s
functioning and ensure that the promises in manifesto are
fulfilled in five years".

He alleged that BSP government had spent over Rs 45
thousand crores on construction of parks and memorials.

"If this money would have been used in development works,
the state would have worn a different look. The creation of
new districts has also added to financial miseries," he said.

Yadav also said "fake cases" lodged against party workers
in the previous regime would be reviewed and withdrawn.
