BHOPAL: Regarding the Assembly elections that are going to take place in Madhya Pradesh, Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav said that his party would participate in the Assembly elections but did not talk about and clarified that whether the party would go under an alliance with the Congress or the BSP.

Besides this, Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav also said that since BJP is ruling for about 15 years in the state so its now time for a change in the government.

When the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister was questioned by the media regarding meeting with Congress president Kamal Nath to talk about the alliance, Mr Yadav said that the party has some very good relations with Kamal Nath and clarified that all he can say as of now is that that SP is going to contest elections in MP.

“Not only MP, the party will be contesting Assembly elections in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh also as our leadership is expanding party base in other states. While the names of the party candidates are being finalized in MP, party’s poll strategy is being given the final shape in rest of the two poll-bound north Indian states,” said a senior SP leader.

In order to answer another question regarding a possible alliance with Congress and BSP, Akhilesh Yadav said that discussions regarding the same are in process with some people but he won’t talk about this now as things are still not clear.

Regarding the talks that are taking place between the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister and Congress president Kamal Nath in the context of the pre-poll alliance, a senior BJP leader said that the Samajwadis have almost a negligible presence in Madhya Pradesh and BJP need not worry about anything.

Media asked Mr. Yadav to share his views regarding the claim that Shivraj Singh Chouhan made in the context of the roads that the roads in Madhya Pradesh were better than those in the US. On this, Mr. Yadav said that he recently visited Simaria, Satna, and Rewa by road but didn’t come by any such road which was better than that in the US.
