SAMAJWADI Party President Akhilesh Yadav and BSP Chief Mayawati will address a joint press meet here on Saturday, amid talks of seat-sharing for Lok Sabha polls from which the Congress seems to be almost out.

The joint press conference at a posh hotel here was announced on Friday by SP National Secretary Rajendra Chaudhary and Bahujan Samaj Party national general secretary SC Misra.

The top leadership of both the parties had met in New Delhi recently to discuss broad parameters of an alliance to take on the BJP unitedly in the LS elections.

The joint press conference will be the first after the parties gave contours of an electoral alliance ahead of polls. The 2 party chiefs had given their “in principle” approval to alliance, which has virtually shut its doors to Congress in the State.
