This time Mulayam Singh Yadav positively responded to Lalu Yadav's call, when he showed his consent towards joining hands with Mayawati to stop BJP from winning elections in UP. Mulayam Singh said that if Lalu Yadav would mediate he would think over the proposal.
Initially some media reports suggested that Mayawati-led BSP too showed its interest for the alliance with SP but with some ridders. Reportedly BSP demanded that first SP should apologies for the 1995 guest house incident when some SP workers had misbehaved with Mayawati. Secondly, BSP asked SP to apologies for the pathetic condition of law and order and the economy of the UP.
However, soon all the media reports proved rumours when Mayawati herself addressed the media and ruled out any possibilities of alliance with SP. She said that both the Yadavs i.e. Lalu and Mulayam, are power hungry politicians.
Later Mulayam Singh Yadav too denied that there was any possibilities of tie-up with Mayawati.
