In an apparent dig at his chief minister son Akhilesh Yadav, Mulayam Singh Yadav said a fact-finding report on his party's defeat rout by the BJP in the 2014 Lok Sabha battle was yet to be given to him.

Terming the coming Panchayat elections a rehearsal for the 2017 Assembly polls, he urged party workers to introspect why the Samajwadi Party got only five of the 80 Lok Sabha seats.

He urged party leaders to ensure that the party was not discredited due to the unruly behaviour of anyone.

A cycle yatra kicked off on the occasion will travel to various parts of the state to highlight the government's achievements.
