While the party is trying hard to discredit farmers’ movement of Congress by exposing the inaction on the part of the Central government on land acquisition, it is also aiming at putting the Mayawati government on the mat on the slack law and order situation in the state.

Giving thrust to its mission 2012, the SP has decided hold meetings in every district on June 2 to boost the morale of its party workers just ahead of its national conference scheduled for June 7-8.

The party is preparing a data of four year rule of BSP in Uttar Pradesh and 1 year congress rule at the Centre that would be distributed to all district presidents of the party. The party office bearers would be directed to highlight the failure of these two parties among the masses in each and every village of the state.

They would tell people about possible price rise of diesel, LPG and kerosene after rising petrol price by central government.
The party workers would highlight that increment of minimum support price (MSP) for paddy was low that recover the yield of the agricultural produce has also become difficult.

Samajwadi party also wants to let the people believe that it’s them who have forced the Central government to table the Land Acquisition Bill in the upcoming monsoon session of the Parliament.

By taking account of farmers’ issue, SP wants to convey to the farmers that their problems would end if they vote back the party into power.
