Samajwadi Party Crisis: UP Congress MLAs In Favour Of Pre-Poll Pact With Akhilesh Yadav

After Congress compared the family feud in the Samajwadi Party to a 1990s soap opera and parried questions on the possibility of an alliance with Akhilesh Yadav for the UP assembly elections, a majority of the Congress MLAs in the state spoke in favour of a pre-poll pact with the SP under the Chief Minister, saying he is “popular”, has a “clean image” and that “secular parties should unite to defeat communal forces”. Cong leader Manish Tewari at the AICC briefing said that Congress can make a comment on an alliance only when there is a certain amount of stability and equilibrium, when it can dispassionately appreciate the political situation. But as many as ten MLAs said the party should enter into an alliance with Akhilesh.
