Congress no to post poll tie-up with SP in UP
Congress on Tuesday dismissed suggestions that it was a "B" team of any party in any of the Assembly polls, including Uttar Pradesh.
New Delhi: Against the backdrop of reported remarks of SP leader Akhilesh Yadav not ruling out a post-poll alliance with it, Congress on Tuesday dismissed suggestions that it was a "B" team of any party in any of the Assembly polls, including Uttar Pradesh.
"We have presented ourselves as an alternative to the
political forces which are ruling UP or have ruled UP in the
past......We are our own A team whether in UP or any other
state. If anybody is creating any confusion that we are their
B team or C team, let me dispel it once and for all," Congress
spokesman Manish Tewari told reporters.
His reaction came in the wake of reported comments of UP
Samajwadi Party chief about not ruling out the possibility of
post-poll alliance with Congress in the state.
He said the remark is entirely hypothetical. "When polls
have not taken place where is the question of post-poll
alliance?" he asked.
