Chhatarpur (MP): Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav Tuesday said that the Congress would need to speak to the Bahujan Samaj Party as well in order to form an alliance between the three outfits. Speaking at a press conference in Madhya Pradesh’s Chhatarpur Tuesday, Yadav claimed that his party wanted an alliance with the Congress but the latter “felt” the SP was “weak”.

He said that it was the Congress’ responsibility, as a larger political outfit, to bring smaller parties under one umbrella. “We wanted an alliance with the Congress but the oldest political party felt that we are weak. Now, an alliance can be formed only when the Congress talks to the BSP along with SP,” Yadav said.
