LUCKNOW: The entire Samajwadi Party leadership, including party president Mulayam Singh Yadav and state president Shivpal Yadav, is set to attend the Metro train flag-off and later address a gathering at Awadh crossing in Alambagh. The dream project of chief minister Akhilesh Yadav, the Metro train will be flagged off for trail on a 6km long stretch in the first phase on December 1.
The SP chief, who had laid the foundation stone of the project in March 2014 is in Delhi for the ongoing Parliament session but is scheduled to reach Lucknow by Wednesday night and leave for Delhi after attending the event. "We are hopeful the party president will attend the event which is another feather in the cap of
chief minister Akhilesh Yadav's government," said senior minister in Akhilesh cabinet Rajendra Chaudhary.
Mulayam was initially skeptical about the timely completion of the project and had earlier said funds spent on the Metro project would have served better if they were utilised for benefit of farmers. He has now asked senior party leaders to put the Metro project on the top of the list of achievements of the Akhilesh government to be showcased in the party manifesto for the 2017 assembly elections.
SP state president Shivpal Yadav and a host of top leaders and senior ministers in Akhilesh cabinet including Azam Khan, Ahmed Hasan, Arvind Singh Gope will also be present at the function. "Our party's state chief will attend the event as it is a major achievement of the SP government," said party spokesperson Deepak Misra. SP national general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav and senior leader Naresh Agarwal who are also party MPs in the Rajya Sabha may not make it to the event because of the ongoing Parliament session and the logjam on demonetisation.
