Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati will hold a meeting of senior party leaders, coordinators, district presidents and assembly constituency in-charges from across the state at their state headquarters in Lucknow on Sunday, where she will review the party’s preparations for the assembly elections.
This is her first meeting with party coordinators since April 14, B R Ambedkar’s birth anniversary. This is also her first meeting after the Legislative Council and Rajya Sabha elections earlier this month, when a few BSP MLAs voted for other parties, while a few from other parties voted in its favour.

Party sources said she is likely to make changes among the assembly elections candidates, and also finalise names for the remaining seats. Three Congress MLAs and one SP MLA had voted for BSP candidates in the Rajya Sabha elections. Mayawati is expected to finalise the decision of accommodating some of them as party candidates.
With the work of constituting organisational committees up to booth-level in every district almost done, Mayawati is also expected to review their composition and give directions for their mobilisation work. She is also likely to ask party workers to counter the BJP’s efforts to communally polarise the state.
