Putting all speculations to rest, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, on Thursday clarified that there will be no alliance with any party in the upcoming assembly polls in the state.
This statement came in the wake of several statements doing the rounds since last few days.
Addressing the reporters at Lucknow on Thursday, Yadav said, “Samajwadi Party will not form any alliance. Only merger is possible.”
Prashant Kishor’s round of talks with Mulayam and Akhilesh came close on the heels of top leaders attending SPs silver jubilee event—which was seen as an attempt by Mulayam to forge an alliance for the crucial assembly polls.
Seeking a roll back of the demonetisation of currency for a few days in view of wedding season, Yadav said, “BJP promised to bring back black money in their election campaigns, but after getting public pressure they ban Rs 500/1000 notes. Govt has spread anarchy in entire country, common man is not even able to buy daily products.”
Meanwhile, the SP supremo appealed to all political parties to stop using black money in elections. He said, “If anybody has fought against black money after Ram Manohar Lohia, it is Samajwadi Party.”
