The Samajwadi Party will begin its campaign for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections with rallies from SP president Mulayam Singh Yadavs home district Etawah and his parliamentary constituency Mainpuri starting October 5.
The rallies are likely to be addressed by Mulayam and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav. Several other rallies,too,have been planned across the state.
The first rally will be held at the exhibition ground in Etawah. Another meeting will be held at Nainair,10 km away from the district headquarters of Mainpuri.
The rallies are being planned in such a manner that functions related to welfare schemes such as Kanya Vidya Dhan distribution and laptop distribution may also be clubbed with them.
The SP will use these rallies as a platform for putting forth its view over the recent Muzaffarnagar violence. The relief operations undertaken by the government will be highlighted and the BJP is likley to be attacked for allegedly instigating the riots.
The SP has already declared 76 candidates for the 80 parliamentary seats in UP.
