Samajwadi Party is gearing up to contest the upcoming civic body as well as Panchayat elections in Chhattisgarh. The party is going to field its candidates for all the seats in these elections. According to party office bearers of Chhattisgarh, current economic crisis will be the most significant issue in the upcoming election.
While interacting with media persons, Samajwadi Party State General Secretary Mangal Karan Pandey condemned the BJP state government over the slump in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and alleged that the half-baked policies of BJP are responsible for trade and commerce crisis in the country. The rupee is getting weaker with every passing day. People are losing jobs across the country and numerous industrial and commercial establishments are on the verge of shutdown. The reality of BJP’s boastful claims has now been exposed.
Pandey further criticized the BJP led NDA Government for getting RBI’s surplus fund of Rs 1.76 lakh crore rupees transferred to the government. He asserted that this move will not help reviving the economy. He added that taking away a large portion of RBI’s contingency fund could spell trouble for the country in extreme financial emergencies and war-like situations.
Mantosh Yadav (State President, Yuvajan Sabha) stated that they are getting excellent response from common people and claimed that the party would register victory on several seats. He further informed that the party is going to field dedicated, hard working and honest candidates after approval from party high command. The manifesto will also be declared as the instructions of top leadership. He further informed that they are going to field candidates in all the wards of Durg for the upcoming polls. Best probable candidates for mayoral as well as corporator elections have been shortlisted.
