Samajwadi Party-Congress Alliance in Uttar Pradesh Faces Impasse over Seat-Sharing

The potential alliance between the Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Congress party in Uttar Pradesh for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections appears to be on shaky ground due to disagreements over seat-sharing.

Key Points:

  • SP’s Final Offer: The SP, led by Akhilesh Yadav, has reportedly offered 17 seats to the Congress, marking their final proposal.
  • Congress’ Demands: The Congress has been negotiating for a larger share of seats, initially requesting 11 and later pushing for more, including Moradabad or Bijnor.
  • Stalled Talks: With both parties unable to reach an agreement, seat-sharing discussions have stalled.
  • Yadav’s Conditional Participation: Mr. Yadav has linked his party’s participation in the ongoing Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Yatra to the finalization of the seat-sharing arrangement.
  • Time Constraints: Sources suggest that if the Congress doesn’t accept the SP’s offer within the next three days, the alliance might collapse.

Potential Implications:

  • A breakdown in the SP-Congress alliance could significantly impact the opposition’s chances of challenging the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Uttar Pradesh, a crucial state with 80 Lok Sabha seats.
  • The impasse highlights the ongoing challenges faced by opposition parties in forging united fronts against the BJP.
