UP elections: What we know so far about the SP-Congress alliance
SP-Congress alliance will together contest next month's elections in Uttar Pradesh. Here's what we know so far
New Delhi: The ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Congress have firmed up a pre-poll grand alliance to contest the state legislative assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh. The Congress will play second fiddle to the ruling SP and back Akhilesh Yadav’s quest to return to power in a state that has not returned any sitting chief minister since mid-1980s. The alliance negotiations reportedly took more than two months to finally come to fruition and that too after the intervention of the Gandhi family.
