Lucknow: After success of candidates backed by BSP in Uttar Pradesh panchayat polls, party supremo Mayawati will hold a strategy session with senior party leaders here on Thursday to fine tune arrangements for 2017 Assembly elections.
The meeting will be attended by senior party functionaries including district unit presidents, party coordinators, incharge of assembly constituencies, sitting MLAs and probable candidates for the next elections, a senior party leader said.
Though the leaders invited for tomorrow’s meeting have not been apprised of the agenda, they believe that discussions will veer around issues which the party can use to further strengthen its poll prospects in the backdrop of its good showing in the panchayat elections.
The party is in an upbeat mood following the good show in the panchayat elections.
Issues that can be used in the coming assembly polls as also areas which need to be strengthened to gain political mileage are likely to be discussed, he said.
“The results of the panchayat elections have proved that the mood of people is pro-BSP as candidates supported by BSP have got more votes,” he said, adding that party leaders feel that had these elections been contested with more fanfare the results would have tilted more in favour of BSP.
“We contested the panchayat elections in a very modest manner but when the assembly polls are held there will be a proper campaign and full fledged publicity and so far better results are likely,” he said.
Tomorrow’s meeting is likely to discuss organisational matters too, he said.
