congress-sp-alliance-in-upLucknow: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party President Akhilesh Yadav today addressed a joint press conference and held a road show here to demonstrate solidarity and give a call for BJP’s crushing defeat.

Both the Congress and Samajwadi leaders gave a call against BJP’s “divisive politics” and asked the people to seal its fate in the Assembly election for the progress and prosperity of Uttar Pradesh.

Congress Vice president Rahul Gandhi described his party’s alliance with the Samajwadi Party by stating that it stands for progress, prosperity and peace. Akhilesh Yadav said it also stands for the people. Under their newly forged alliance, Congress will be contesting 105 of the 403 seats while the SP will field its candidates in all the remaining 298 seats.

Answering a pointed question on Ram temple at Ayodhya, which figures in the BJP menifesto, Rahul Gandhi said that the matter is subjudice and hence he would comment. He also took a dig at the BJP saying they always raise this issue during elections.
