Having promised to give priority to law and order in the state,the Samajwadi Party has now decided to form a disciplinary committee to monitor the complaints of unlawful activities against SP workers.
As SP had got a bad name for the lawlessness that prevailed during its earlier regimes,party president Mulayam Singh Yadav and state president Akhilesh Yadav both have continuously stressed on upholding the law in their election campaigns.
Party spokesperson Naved Siddique said a committee is being formed to monitor the behaviour of party workers in the state. “If there are any complaints of SP workers breaking law,the committee will inquire into all such incidents and take stern action against those found guilty,” he said. Siddique said the idea of committee was mooted by Akhilesh even before the results were out.
The committee will be headed by senior party leader Ramgopal Yadav. The party is also working on formulating a code of conduct for the party workers across state. According to a party leader,the party will monitor the misuse of SP’s name by miscreants and the district chiefs of the party will be asked to look after the behaviour of party workers in their areas.
Several reports of post-poll violence by alleged SP supporters have been reported from various parts of the state since Tuesday when the results of Assembly polls were announced. The incidents of firing by SP workers,and clashes have been reported from Firozabad,Jhansi,Ambedkar Nagar,Sitapur,and Bhim Nagar districts in this last five days.
