Samajwadi Party national executive meeting at Jabalpur in May
New Delhi, Apr 2 (UNI)The Samajwadi Party will hold its next national executive meeting at Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh before May 10, party general secretary Amar Singh announced here today.
''Besides the meeting at Jabalpur, we will soon be increasing our activities in Bihar and Uttaranchal too to widen our base,'' Mr Singh told reporters after a meeting of his party's Parliamentary Board.
The meeting was attended by party chief and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav and senior leader Janeshwar Mishra among others.
The SP general secretary said his party was feeling very buoyed up after its victory in Kauriram byelection in Uttar Pradesh where it demolished the BJP hold.
In Kauriram, which was so far considered impregnable by BJP's Yogi Adityanath, we won by 11000 votes, and that too despite the combined opposition of the Congress,'' he said.
''Contraray to the misinformation campaign by a section of the press and political leaders, SP's base was increasing in the state and result of the Kauriram byelections were the proof,'' he said.
Despite adverse circumstances, the party candidates for Rajya Sabha too got through, he added.
Replying to a question, Mr Singh said the party had so far not taken any decision on fielding any candidate for byelections to the Rae Bareli seat fallen vacant following resignation of Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
