Farukkhabad: Samajwadi Party will contest the Lok Sabha elections on its own and it does not need help of any other political party, a senior SP leader said on Sunday.
"SP will contest Lok Sabha polls alone. We don`t need any party`s help," Uttar Pradesh PWD Minister and SP leader Shivpal Singh Yadav said here.
The minister said there was decline in corruption in PWD, Irrigation and cooperative departments, but "commission- taking" could not been controlled so far and warned officers that the party would take strict action against those found indulging in it.
He said to make women self-reliant, the cooperative department would provide them loan at an interest rate of three per cent. Women would be appointed as directors of district cooperative banks, Yadav said.
