Tytler said the Seva Dal would putforth this suggestion to the party high to take this aspect into consideration for the upcoming Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh.

Addressing a meeting organised by Seva Dal, Tytler said, “In UP, Seva Dal has planned to hold a training programme for the cadre in a big way in all districts starting from July 15 in which at least 90 percent new faces will be included.”
