Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav reveals plan for 2022 Uttar Pradesh Assembly election

Samajwadi Party (SP) president Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday, November 14 made some revelations for the 2022 Uttar Pradesh Assembly election.

While speaking to the media, the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said that his Samajwadi Party would not form an alliance in the assembly election which indicates that he is in no mood to enter into an alliance with the Congress with which it fought the 2017 Assembly election.

“I would like to wish you all a very Happy Diwali first of all. There have been a lot of important people joining in the party recently in Lucknow and today in Etawah as well. However, the region has been ignored by the current BJP government who has just put a black stone in the name of development in Etawah,” said Akhilesh Yadav on the occasion of Diwali.

He further said, “Samajwadi Party will try to form an understanding with smaller political parties but no alliance with any big political parties. I have said it many times earlier also and today I am saying it again, Pragatisheel Party will also be adjusted and Jaswantnagar has already been left for their leader and in times to come, we will also give cabinet berth to him.”

It is to be noted that the Samajwadi Party a few weeks back withdrew its plea for disqualification of party MLA Shivpal Yadav from the Uttar Pradesh Assembly. The move is indicative of the SP chief's intention to mend ties with his estranged uncle. While Shivpal Yadav thanked his nephew for attempting to take him in the party fold.

Shivpal also wrote a letter to Akhilesh Yadav in which he said that a ‘clear and positive intervention’ would help SP defeat BJP in the 2022 assembly election and come back to power in the state.
