Akhilesh Yadav thanks Mayawati after UP bypolls win

Samajwadi Party workers and leaders celebrate outside party headquarters in Uttar Pradesh

Yadav said that although the Election Commission was yet to announce dates for Lok Sabha bypoll in Kairana, he hoped that the opposition unity experiment will further consolidate in days to come.

"Our ties are good with everyone", he said, commenting on the BSP's support to the Samajwadi Party in the Uttar Pradesh by-polls. BJP failed to keep promises made to the people.

The SP supremo also said that the people were "angry" with the BJP and had given vent to their anger in the by-polls.

About SP-BSP alliance for 2019 Lok Sabha elections Yadav said this was time for celebrations.

Akhilesh Yadav said the Samajwadi Party "respects all" and "sometimes we have to shed past baggage".

While the incumbent parties have managed to hold on to the seats in Bihar, UP has seen two reversals-one of them in Gorakhpur, a Lok Sabha seat previously occupied by Yogi Adityanath, the UP chief minister. "I am happy that the poor and Dalits have helped", he said.


While Akhilesh Yadav had thanked the BSP chief who he fondly calls "Buaji" (aunt) at a hurriedly-called press conference in the evening, he created a flutter in political circles here as his cavalcade drove from his Vikramaditya Marg residence to the sprawling bungalow of Mayawati at Mall Avenue, a kilometre away.

"No chief minister has ever shown such disrespect to the norms and used derogatory language..."

Speaking on the occasion, the SP General Secretary Azam Khan was more open on the future alliance with the BSP in 2019. The CM said in state assembly that he did not celebrate Eid.

BJP has called us a lot of names; from a rat and snake combine to Aurangzeb's rule.

What transpired between the two is not yet known but it is understood that the two discussed the poll outcome in which their parties had together routed the ruling BJP.
