New Delhi: Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav has adopted a new trick to prevent widespread discontent provoked by changing trend in the tickets. Mulayam assured the party workers and leaders of due respect and openly promised to give them red beacon if the SP comes into power in Uttar Pradesh.

Addressing a meeting of party office bearers, Mulayam said, "With just a month for the assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, all must lend their full strength to extensive public relations and publicity for the election campaign."

He asked the party workers to support those who have got the tickets and promised the rest to provide them the red beacon if the party comes to power.

He said, after the party forms a majority government in the state, it will also play a prominent role in forming the government at the Centre in 2014.

Mincing no words in criticising the Centre and the government in UP, he said, “The Centre and state governments are corrupt as they have left no stone unturned in encouraging price rise. The people are moaning under the soaring inflation.”

He further added, “Lawyers, businessmen, teachers and youth are victims of the harassment meted out by the government and the minorities are being insulted. The public is fed up of the BSP rule and is counting on the Samajwadi Party for a change.”

Mentioning about the massive public support meted out to the Samajwadi Kranti rath yatra of Akhilesh Yadav, he said, “The support clearly indicates about the mood of the people”.
