He was in touch with Congress for some time. But later he started talking of alliance with Samajwadi Party. It is being told that there is confusion over some seats with the SP in western Uttar Pradesh. Once that issue is resolved, the candidates will be announced. Keep in mind that there are big faces of the backward classes in alliance with the Samajwadi Party, but there was a lack of big faces of the Depressed Classes. This has been accomplished by the alliance of Chandrashekhar’s party. The Samajwadi Party is also considering the alliance with Chandrashekhar’s party as a cut of the BSP.
