LUCKNOW: Attempting to recover the lost ground after electoral debacle, Samajwadi Party today asked its party workers to hold district-level meetings with common people to popularise the state government's welfare schemes.

The party's UP president and state chief minister Akhilesh Yadav directed that the meeting at all the district headquarters should start from June 2. Party spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary said that later in June, these meetings would also be organised at block level to establish a  dialogue  between the party workers and common people.

"The chief minister has given a new agenda of development in the state and initiated a number of schemes for the social and economic development of farmers, poor, backwards and minorities during the past two years," he said.

After drubbing in Lok Sabha polls, the ruling party sacked 36 leaders, having status of minister of state in the government, from the party on May 20.

Later, the party also dissolved its state unit.

SP was reduced to five seats out of 80 in the Lok Sabha elections in Uttar Pradesh. Only Mulayam Singh Yadav and his three family members emerged victors.
