If early preparations were one of the reasons behind the success of the BSP in the last Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, then party chief Mayawati is set to replicate the same in the parliamentary elections.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati, after springing a surprise on one and all in the Assembly polls, has already set the next set of targets for the party. In the 2009 Parliamentary elections, the BSP aims to wrest at least 60 seats in Uttar Pradesh. It has deputed two co-coordinators in each of the 81 seats of the state with instructions to work on strengthening the organisation in the constituencies.
The co-coordinators for each seat will camp in their respective constituencies and submit reports of the caste equation of every seat in the next six months. The panel of candidates will be finalised a year ahead of the polls which would give them ample time to campaign.
The CM has also effected an organisational restructing in the state. Even the Bhaichaara Committees of various castes have been reconstituted.
The state has been divided into five zones, and senior party leaders like Munkad Ali, Suneel Chittod, Naseemuddin Siddqui, Jugual Kishore, Babu Singh Kushwaha, Kamlakant Gautam and Daddu Prasad have been put in charge of these zones.
