Mumbai: A day after joining hands with the Samajwadi Party, the Congress in Maharashtra on Saturday called off its alliance with the party led by Mulayam Singh Yadav.

Congress had parted ways from the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) on Thursday evening and aligned with the SP on Friday.

However, the new alliance too broke up.

Earlier, the SP was said to be contesting eight seats in alliance in Congress.

The NCP had announced its decision to break ties with Congress soon after the crumbling of the 25-year-old Shiv Sena-BJP alliance.
