Hinting at snap polls, Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on Monday said the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government might declare Lok Sabha elections after the Budget session of Parliament.
Asking party workers to be ready for early polls, he said the exercise could be held by September this year.
“You all should be prepared for Lok Sabha polls. As per my information, the elections may be declared after the Budget session and the exercise is likely to be held by September,” Yadav said.
He asked party workers to keep an eye on electoral rolls, remain in touch with people and redress their problems by forwarding it to government officials.
On the bureaucracy, the Samajwadi Party chief said he would talk to Akhilesh Yadav, his son and the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, on whether government officials were doing work for improving the lot of the common man or not.
On the Delhi gang-rape case, he said a serious issue was buried by raking up of other issues (by the Union government).
