UP politics: Mayawati says BJP pressurising SP, Congress to form alliance; Akhilesh-Shivpal fight continues
Addressing a press conference today in Lucknow, BSP chief Mayawati alleged that the BJP-led central government is pressurizing the Samajwadi Party and the Congress to form an alliance ahead of the 2017 UP assembly polls.

Mayawati said that the central government is using its agencies like Enforcement Directorate (ED), Income Tax (IT) Department and CBI to build pressure on both the parties for the alliance formation.

"Samajwadi Party-Congress alliance will materialise only after final approval from the BJP," Mayawati said in the press conference.

The BSP supremo said that when her party was in power in Uttar Pradesh the BJP was weak in the state, however, now the saffron party is strong in the state under SP's regime. She said this shows both the parties have been colluding in UP.

Mayawati while expressing confidence that the BJP won't be victorious in the upcoming UP assembly polls, also appealed the Muslim community in the state to support her to prevent the BJP from forming the government.

The BSP chief said that the ruling Samajwadi Party in UP won't be able to form the next government even after forming an alliance with the Congress as the internal rift within the Mulayam-led party has grown with each passing day.

Meanwhile, despite numerous claims made by SP's national president Mulayam Singh Yadav, chief minister Akhilesh Yadav and UP SP chief, Shivpal Singh Yadav that all is well within the party, differences between Akhilesh and Shivpal Yadav have once again surfaced.

And this time it is in the form of candidates' list for 2017 polls forwarded to Mulayam Singh by Akhilesh Yadav. The Akhilesh list for 403 assembly seats does not include the names of 175 candidates, whose names had earlier been finalised by Shivpal Singh.
