Lucknow: The ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) in Uttar Pradesh has claimed that the state government’s policies were finding an echo on foreign shores and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav was being lauded for his visionary decisions.

Samajwadi Party spokesman Rajendra Chowdhary said on Friday that during his recent visit to France and Netherlands, policies and schemes like the Samajwadi Pension scheme and Lohia housing scheme drew applause from foreign dignitaries.

He further said that during the visit, Dimple Yadav, party MP from Kannauj gave a presentation of various steps being undertaken by the state government for women empowerment, at an international symposium in Rotterdam, Netherlands and gave a detail of initiatives taken by the Uttar Pradesh government led by her husband Akhilesh Yadav.

The spokesman further said that party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav was of the view that the steps of social welfare and comprehensive development unleashed by the Samajwadi Party (SP) government had no parallels and this was now being felt by people across the world.

The senior SP leader and cabinet minister also highlighted that during their recent visit to France, the chief minister had successfully pitched in for Kannauj ‘itra’.

He also said that very soon, investments would pour in and generate employment for the youth of the state.

The opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) however scoffed at the claims and said that the SP government was only bringing disrepute to the state.

“The world now knows how poor the law and order is in Uttar Pradesh and there is nothing worthwhile that this government has done in the past three and a half years” says Hriday Narayan Dixit, Leader of Opposition in the legislative council.

With most senior leaders in the BJP having retired from active politics, the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) is now looking towards building a new leadership. Later this month, the RSS will be holding camps in Uttar Pradesh to discuss ways to identify and groom young leaders.

According to a senior RSS functionary in Lucknow, the first camp in this regard will be held in Jhansi, possibly on June 29 and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat will be attending it. Another camp is scheduled to be held in Lucknow.

“After Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, there seems to be a dearth of second rung leadership in the bhBJP. There is a need to develop leadership that will carry forward the work initiated by these two leaders.

“Rajnath Singh is a senior leader, but his age is 67. He would have crossed 70 by the time the next general elections are held in 2024. We have to identify and inculcate leadership qualities in the younger lot,” the functionary said.

He further said that identifying young talent that could be groomed for greater responsibilities was a continuous process in the organisation and it never stopped.

“It is not a sudden decision but the RSS leadership always has a vision for the future and thinks ahead. We keep finding young people with leadership skills,” the functionary added.

Earlier this month, the RSS chief had underlined the need for checking misuse of power at a four-day camp that he addressed in Kanpur.

“Those getting elected in a democratic set-up have immense power, but this does not mean that it should be misused. If the government falters at any point of time, the Sangh will give it advice and suggestions with a positive point of view,” he had said.

The RSS chief had also discussed the topics of nationalism, social equality and service in his interaction with over 600 volunteers. He also focused on qualitative development of the Sangh volunteers and apprised them of his views on dedication towards society.

The RSS leadership is also expected to come to Lucknow for a separate camp at the end of this month. In Lucknow, the RSS leaders will pay homage to senior journalist Rajnath Singh Surya, who passed away earlier this month. Surya was also a senior RSS functionary.

Officially, however, the RSS office bearers said that they had yet to receive any programme of Bhagwat and said that such camps were a ‘routine affair’. (IANS)
