Congress refuses to comment on SP-BSP alliance

New Delhi: Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Saturday refused to comment on the BSP and SP leaving the party out of their alliance in Uttar Pradesh for the coming Lok Sabha elections and said the party will give its response on Sunday in Lucknow.

Azad told reporters here that the party is preparing for the elections and district-wise meetings were being held.

“We will convey our party’s response to the press conference of BSP and SP in Lucknow tomorrow. We have been meeting workers from western UP for the past two days and will meet those of central and eastern UP on Sunday,” Azad said.

The BSP and SP announced on Saturday that they will contest the coming Lok Sabha polls together in Uttar Pradesh sharing 38 seats each of the 80 in the state, while leaving Rae Bareli and Amethi for Congress, which has been kept out of the alliance.
