Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and BSP leader Mayawati on today went on to say that their alliance was capable of defeating the BJP.
In a series of tweets, Mayawati said: “BSP wants to make it clear that there will be no alliance with the Congress in Uttar Pradesh and across the country. Our party workers should not get diverted by the false news spread by the Congress.”
In another tweet, the former Chief Minister added: “Congress is free to contest on all the 80 seats in the state. The alliance of the BSP is fully capable of defeating BJP in the state. The Congress should not spread the news that it is leaving seven seats for the (BSP-SP) alliance.”
Soon after, former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav also gave a cold shoulder to the Congress.
He tweeted: “In Uttar Pradesh, the SP-BSP-RLD alliance is capable of defeating the BJP. The Congress should not create any kind of confusion.”
