Lucknow, February 22: Following the formalization of the alliance between the Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Congress in Uttar Pradesh, Congress leaders extended an invitation to SP chief Akhilesh Yadav to join the 'Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra', led by Rahul Gandhi. Congress leader Ajai Rai confirmed that Akhilesh Yadav is slated to join Rahul Gandhi's nationwide march aimed at fostering unity and justice across India.

Yadav's participation is scheduled to commence in Agra on February 25, marking a pivotal moment in the collaborative efforts between the two political entities. Earlier plans for Akhilesh Yadav's involvement in the 'Naya Yatra' in Rae Bareli had to be shelved due to delays in seat allocation, prompting the recalibration of his participation to align with the 'Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra'.

Rahul Or Priyanka To Contest From Amethi?

Rai emphasized, "We have extended the invitation to Akhilesh Yadav, and he is expected to actively engage in the Naya Yatra." In response to queries regarding the potential candidacies of Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi from Amethi, Rai said it is Gandhi family's prerogative.

"The decision rests with them. Those two seats are traditionally associated with the Gandhi family and will continue to remain so," he said. With the agreement on seat sharing finalized, the electoral landscape now sees Congress poised to contest 17 seats, while the SP and its allied parties will vie for 63 seats, setting the stage for a collaborative endeavor in the upcoming elections.
