In the wake of the coming Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh, the ruling Samajwadi Party is fine tuning its cadre. Recently, the SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav at a party meeting asked its leaders not to indulge in any "nefarious activities" (like land grabbing, manhandling of officials and attending anti-party activities).

Mulayam Singh warned the party's leaders saying, “I know many party leaders who are indulging in anti-party activities which is tarnishing party’s image. I have the feedback about each and everyone, they should mend their ways otherwise stern action will be taken against them.”

The party may change its list of 'declared candidates' for the polls. In some districts it will go for a massive organisational change. For this, the basis will be reports prepared by divisional in charges of the SP.

In this connection, the party had deployed 36 MLCs in the entire state to prepare the report which has been submitted to the party high command namely, Mulayam Singh Yadav and general secretary Ramgopal Yadav.

In these performance reports, the modus-operandi of the candidates and working of the party in various districts have been analysed.

According to a senior leader of the SP, the divisional in charges have received many complaints against sitting MLAs and other leaders. The complaints include ignoring the general party workers, not being very active and ignoring development work in their respective areas.

The party high command is reviewing the report submitted by its divisional in charges and is likely to take action against those 'black listed' in the report soon.

Its believed if Mulayam Sing takes action on the basis of this report, the party will change one-third of its announced candidates whose performance has been ranked 'below expected level' or those against whom anti-party activity complaints have been received. Those candidates who do not have any winning potential will also be replaced by other candidates by the party high command.
