2019 Elections: SP, BSP Form Alliance in UP to Take on BJP

New Delhi: In a significant development, two arch rivals Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Samajwadi Party (SP) today formally announced their alliance to take on the communal forces like BJP in Uttar Pradesh in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections 2019.

The two regional outfits also said that the alliance will continue for the assembly elections to be held in 2022.

Both parties also reached at seat sharing agreement for the general elections with the two parties contesting 38 seats each out of the 80 Lok Sabha seats in UP. However, they have decided not contest in Amethi and Rae Bareli despite the fact that there is no formal alliance between SP-BSP and Congress.

Talking about the alliance in a joint conference with SP chief Akhilesh Yadav, BSP supremo Mayawati said,  "We (BSP-SP) have decided to contest upcoming Lok Sabha elections together, this will lead to a new political revolution in the country".

 “The alliance is a new political revolution that will rob Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party National President Amit Shah off their sleep”, she said. 

Earlier, the two regional parties had joined hands for by-polls in three crucial seats including Yogi Adityanath's Gorakhpur and got success. Now they are taking the alliance to the next level to give strong fight to Modi-led BJP.
