New Delhi: Rashtriya Lok Dal on Sunday ruled out any post-poll alliance with Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh and reaffirmed its alliance with the Congress.
"We have an alliance with Congress in UP and at the Centre. Anything we do will be done in consultation with Congress," union minister and RLD chief Ajit Singh said.
He was reacting to reports appeared in a section of the media that RLD will tie-up with SP to form a government in UP after the election results.

Singh said, "There is no truth in it (the reports). These are totally concocted and motivated."

Congress has formed an alliance with RLD before the UP elections and fought the polls together and we will continue to have alliance with it, he said.

Exit polls conducted by TV channels have projected SP in the lead in a hung house. One channel has given SP a clear majority by predicting that it may get up to 210 seats in the 403-member House and put the RLD tally at 11.
