The Samajwadi Party (SP) in Uttar Pradesh is all set to hold its state executive meeting on Saturday keeping in mind the upcoming Lok Sabha polls in 2014.

According to SP sources, 150 members of the party´s state executive will meet on Saturday to give their feedback and thoughts on the reports made by election observers.

SP´s 58 election observers were assigned with the task of identifying candidates for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls in 2014.

The crucial meeting will take place days after party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav voiced his displeasure over the SP-led state government and said it was not meeting targets.

He said the government should work hard to fulfill the promises made by it during its campaigning for the state Assemble election earlier this year.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday said he will take all possible steps to make Mulayam ´happy´.

According to reports, Akhilesh had decided to meet party workers at the official residence of the Chief Minister in Lucknow on every Wednesday.

The Chief Minister will meet the workers between 10 am to 12 pm on every Wednesday.

Akhilesh was the star of the 2012 assembly polls having led a 224 seat victory of the SP in the 403 member assembly, ousting the Mayawati government and also negating the effect of Rahul Gandhi in the state.
