Earlier, Samajwadi Party chief and former UP CM Akhilesh Yadav had announced that the party will form an alliance with small political parties for the 2022 Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls.
Referring to the condition of farmers, former Akhilesh had said, “There was no picture of CM Yogi in the BJP’s manifesto for the 2017 assembly elections, so he threw it in the dustbin. In the manifesto, BJP had promised to double the income of farmers by 2022 but it did not happen. BJP should tell what roadmap it had prepared to fulfill its promise.”
When asked about the possibility of joining hands with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Akhilesh Yadav did not give any direct answer and said that the effort of SP will be to take more and more parties with it.
The assembly elections are to be held in Uttar Pradesh in the year 2022. Due to this, political activities in the state have intensified. AAP Rajya Sabha MP and Uttar Pradesh in-charge Sanjay Singh met Akhilesh Yadav in Lucknow last week, fueling political speculations.
