UKD (P) to enrol 14 lakh members

Dehradun, February 27
The Uttarakhand Kranti Dal (P) has begun preparations to strengthen its organisational structure for the next Parliament and Assembly elections in the state.

Addressing mediapersons at the party office today, party president Trivender Singh Panwar said the party had decided to provide membership to 20,000 people from each constituency at a meeting of working committee which was held a day before.
This way the party was targeting to enroll 14 lakh new members in the next one year. The membership drive will start from April 1 and continue till March 31 next year.
There will be a chairperson for each unit in 70 constituencies of the state. He said, “The party is preparing itself for the elections at three levels, local bodies, panchayat and legislative assembly in the state. Beside that, we are looking forward to the Parliament elections in 2014 and the next Assembly elections in the state in 2017.”
He said those candidates who got less than 3000 votes in this Assembly elections would not be given a chance to contest elections again.
“It was also decided at the meeting that the party strategy will be decided after counting by the president of the party which will be accepted to all members of the party. At present, we have decided to sit in the opposition. Besides, in second possibility, we will also appeal the dissidents and independent candidates to join hands with the UKD (P) rather than the BJP and the Congress to form a government in the state.”
He, however, denied having any alliance with the Uttarakhand Raksha Morcha (URM). “The URM has proved the biggest spoiler in our endeavours to form a regional front so there is no possibility to have any agreement with it on any platform, not even post-election scenario,” he said.
