Lucknow: Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam SIngh Yadav on Monday said his party will give priority to new faces having a clean image in distribution of tickets in the coming Uttar Pradesh state assembly elections.

"The party will give priority to new faces in ticket distribution having a clean image and winnability," Mulayam said while addressing SP workers at the party headquarters here.

He said forming the next government after 2012 assembly eletion was the resolve of the party.

"Party workers should work with dedication to achieve the target," he said.

Yadav said SP would ensure justice to the backward community girl allegedly raped by BSP MLA in Banda district.

He alleged the police officers attempted to shield the MLA on the directives of the Chief Minister.

"While the girl was released on the orders of the High Court, the CM is creating confusion by claiming that she ordered her release," he alleged.

Yadav alleged Dwivedi was issuing threats from the jail and the girl was kept under house arrest in her village.

"There is a threat to her life," he charged. The SP supremo said the party will effectively raise the issues related to Muslims.

Meanwhile, state SP president Akhilesh Yadav has constituted a fact-finding committee to probe the Banda rape incident.

"The committee headed by MP Shushila Saroj will visit Shahbazpur village and meet the victim," party spokesman Rajendra Chaudhary said.
