Mulayam added that the remaining candidates for Lok Sabha polls will be declared within a week.
Meanwhile, Shivpal and other Cabinet ministers, including Ahmad Hasan and Om Prakash Singh, narrated all the "good works" done by their departments. All said that the workers are the backbone of the party and should get due importance.
Mulayam, however, pointed out: "There is lack of co-ordination between the government and the organisation. Ministers should remember that workers are also important."
He said senior ministers should desist from making unnecessary statements in media. "It would be better if the ministers gave information about the development works done by the department. Betuki baatein na karein," Mulayam stated. He also said that development works should be expedited.
Mulayam also expressed his displeasure over the recent dissolution of the four youth frontal organisations of the party. "If there was some problem with any particular person, he should have faced the music. But the frontal organisations were dissolved. These should be reconstituted soon and there should not be any injustice with the youths," he said.
Interestingly, when the frontal organisations were dissolved on January 3, the party had stated that the action was taken on Mulayam's direction.
Ram Gopal assured that the frontal organisations will be reconstituted soon and only deserving youths will be given place in the organisation. He, however, said that some leaders were on his radar for non-performance.
The resentment against some candidates for the Lok Sabha election also srufaced at the meeting. Mulayam said that an observor will be sent from Lucknow to assess the sitution. "If there is any requirement for change, it will be referred to the national executive committee of the party," he added.
Later, Ram Gopal urged the members to work towards winning maximum seats in the Lok Sabha election and explanding the party in other states, like Uttarakhand, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh.
