WITH bleak chances of alliance between Congress and BSP, an unexpected tie up between Samajwadi Party and GGP is likely to make headlines in Madhya Pradesh. Samajwadi Party’s National President Akhilesh Yadav is likely to join hands with Gondwana Gantantra Party (GGP) during his maiden day-long visit to Madhya Pradesh on Saturday. If this tie up occurs then it would be a surprise for BJP and more than this, it will be a bigger surprise for Congress too.

State President of Samajwadi Party (SP) Gauri Singh Yadav, while talking to ‘The Hitavada’ said, “SP chief Akhilesh Yadav is arriving in Shahdol to participate in a programme of Gondwana community on Saturday. When asked whether there are chances of alliance between Samajwadi Party and Gondwana Gantantra Party, he said, “Talks are underway and if things go smoothly then tie up is possible between the parties.”

Interestingly, GGP enjoys good support of tribals in tribal belt of Madhya Pradesh. On the other hand, Samajwadi Party has a good influence in areas adjoining neighbouring Uttar Pradesh. Hence, possible tie up between both the regional parties may spring surprise and obstacle in way of ruling party BJP which is hopeful to form Government again. Meanwhile, political corridors are abuzz with the news that Samajwadi Party is also in talks with the Congress for alliance. Talks are being held at high level and entire talks are over seat sharing. Moreover, Samajwadi Party is surprised that Congress has been unable to work out with BSP so far.

“I have told Congress State President Kamal Nath that if he wants to see BJP out of power in next election then tie up with Samajwadi Party and BSP is necessary,” said a senior leader of Samajwadi Party on condition of anonymity. This Samajwadi Party leader had held some meetings with the Congress over possible tie up. The leader further said that in last Assembly elections, there were many seats in the State on which BSP had lost with a thin margin.
