UP Assembly polls 2017: Mulayam Singh Yadav to launch Samajwadi Party's election campaign with Ghazipur rally
Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav will formally launch his party's election campaign with his first rally at Ghazipur on Wednesday.
Lucknow: Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav will formally launch his party's election campaign with his first rally at Ghazipur on Wednesday.
According to reports, all top Samajwadi Party leaders are likely to be present during the rally in Ghazipur.
"All preparations for the rally have been done. The party is going to form government in the state again as it has done historic works," Samajwadi Party state president Shivpal Yadav said, adding that Purvanchal (eastern Uttar Pradesh) has always been the stronghold of his party.
Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has already kick-started the party's campaign with ''Samajwadi Vikas Rath Yatra'' on November 3.
The Samajwadi Party's election campaign was delayed due to the family feud and Mulayam cancelling the rally from Azamgarh to start the poll campaign.
In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections Samajwadi Party had lost the seat to BJP candidate and now Union Minister Manoj Sinha by a small margin.
