Akhilesh Yadav pulls up partymen for 'misuse' of party flags

Giving a strict message to partymen to be disciplined, Uttar Pradesh Chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday said he was getting complaints from various quarters regarding "misuse" of party flags that are being used in cars and the practice should immediately be checked.

"I am getting complaints from various quarters that party flags are being misused. The practice should be checked immediately...", Yadav said while addressing a gathering on the occasion of third death anniversary of party leader Jyaneshwar Mishra here.

About Mishra, Singh said the scheme launched in his name would change the face of 1,000 villages in the state besides developing a park in the state capital.

"Some people wanted to claim on the park to be named after Jyaneshwar Mishra but we have give proof in the court regarding this...This park would be a big one and a tribute to the SP leader," he said.

Regarding party's 2014 preparations, Yadav said partymen would have to gear up, otherwise they would lag behind others.

SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav in his address attributed son Akhilesh's entry into the politics to Mishra and said, "It was Mishra, who proposed Akhilesh's name from Kannauj seat, which was vacated by me after winning from Sambhal too."

Yadav said it was the dream of Mishra to see party performing decisive role at the Centre and partymen should try to fulfill his dream.
