Winning Delhi a challenge for SP: Mulayam Singh Yadav
Lucknow: With Lok Sabha polls round the corner, SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on Wednesday said winning Delhi is a challenge for his party and rallied partymen to put in extra efforts on this front.
"Winning Delhi is a challenge for the party. Everyone knows that the decision of people of UP will give new direction to national politics. This is the reason all eyes are on state politics and the state government," Yadav said while addressing a programme organised on the death anniversary of party leader Janeshwar Mishra.
Advising Samajwadi Party workers to be on their best behaviour, Yadav said this was important as the party was in power in the state.
Praising son Akhilesh Yadav`s government for the work done by it in less that two years, he said governments in other states had failed to achieve what UP had done.
Hitting out at the media, the SP supremo said in the absence of national issues, news items about incidents and events in Uttar Pradesh are shown repeatedly and debated endlessly.
"The same news is being shown repeatedly..This situation is not in the interest of democracy," he said.
Attacking Congress and BSP, Yadav alleged that both the parties "always betrayed" farmers and Muslims.
"These parties work for a handful of people and ignore interests of farmers and Muslims, besides other sections."
SP state president and CM Akhilesh Yadav urged partymen to strengthen the party ahead of the Lok Sabha polls.
