No Alliance between Congress and BSP in Madhya Pradesh Assembly Elections?
Written by Abhishek Lohia

Assembly elections will take place in Madhya Pradesh later in this year. For the preparation of assembly elections, top two major political parties of the state, BJP and Congress have given a blow. In the Madhya Pradesh assembly elections, only two major parties are considered to forming the government, the Congress, and the BJP. But recently, a few days ago, the Samajwadi Party’s National President and former UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav have decided to fielded its candidate in the state election of Madhya Pradesh. The BSP has denied the rumors of making an alliance with main opposition party Congress on Sunday. The BSP said that there is no discussion is ongoing with Congress in Madhya Pradesh for the assembly elections.

Madhya Pradesh BSP state president Narmada Prasad Ahirwar said that Congress is campaigning for falsehood in the state. He said that this false propaganda of Congress is wrecking BSP. The BSP state president also claimed that the BSP would win 50 to 55 seats in the upcoming state elections. He said that I want to make it clear that there is no conversation is ongoing at the state level regarding the alliance for Madhya Pradesh assembly elections with Congress. As far as I know, there are no conversations at the Central level also. We are going to contest alone. 

At the same time, Madhya Pradesh’s media Cell head Manak Agarwal said that we have not named any party about the alliance. Our party has just said that we will try to connect the same thinking parties in Madhya Pradesh assembly elections. We have never named the BSP. However, Congress state president Kamal Nath had recently indicated the Congress-BSP could combine in Madhya Pradesh. On the question of the alliance from the BSP, Kamal Nath had said that the Congress has an eye on BJP opponents. In 2014, BJP came to power with just 31% votes.
