Ahead of Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls next year, BJP has said the party will have alliance only with those who contested the 2014 General Election as part of NDA, virtually ruling out any possible understanding with Ajit Singh’s RLD.
“BJP would enter into alliance only with the parties that jointly contested last Lok Sabha election with NDA,” BJP state in-charge Om Mathur said at Mathura on Sunday when asked of possible alliance with the Rashtriya Lok Dal.
Mathur was here to offer prayers to ‘Behari Ji Maharaj’.

Asked if the party plans to project any chief ministerial candidate in the Assembly polls, he said, “The party would not project anyone, instead the face of BJP would be projected.”
He termed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent rally in Ballia as historic.
“It has given the message that after former prime minister Lal Bahadur Shastri, Modi is another Prime Minister who talks and works for the interest of farmers,” he claimed.
