Lucknow, November 24
The Samajwadi Party on Wednesday opened its doors for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) after forging an alliance with the Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD).
AAP MP Sanjay Singh met SP president Akhilesh Yadav at the Lohia Trust office on Wednesday.
The two leaders did not give any details about their discussion, but sources said that the AAP MP had submitted a list of 25 seats to Akhilesh.
AAP had earlier announced that it would contest all 403 assembly seats and had also released its first list of candidates.
“If the priority is to ensure that this government is thrown out, then all of us will have to make some sacrifices and bring all parties on one platform,” said an AAP leader.
Samajwadi Party has already got RLD, Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP) and Mahan Dal for the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections.
