New Delhi: With carrot and stick approach, Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav, who had recently lauded the performance of Uttar Pradesh government led by his son Akhilesh Yadav, has thumbed his nose at the dismal functioning of the ruling dispensation in the state.

The Samajwadi Party chief has expressed dissatisfaction over the performance of the state government. In a closed door meeting held at the Chief Minister’s residence on Tuesday, the SP chief pulled up the government for its failure in fulfilling the expectations of the people of the state.

During meeting, SP chief reportedly said, “There is some lacuna in the functioning of the government. I had given six months to the government to prove itself and four months have passed but it has failed to win the hearts of the people of the state.”

He further said, “Only a few people in the government are delivering but I am dissatisfied with most of others. They should improve their style of functioning.”  

Advising party legislators and ministers not to publicly air their differences or disagreements, he further added that such matters should be conveyed to the party leadership.

He also cautioned the party leaders to remain alert to thwart propaganda of opposition parties against SP.
    
"All the parties have ganged up against SP and you all should remain alert and thwart their propaganda", he said advising them to gear up for "mission 2014" (Lok Sabha polls). He also said that after getting an absolute majority in the last assembly elections, the party is now focusing on the next general elections due in 2014 in which the party has to win maximum number of seats from the state.

Yadav asked party leaders to set an example before the people who had a lot of expectations from them.
