The clarification by the BSP chief comes days after three of the party leaders Pradeep Ahirwar, Devdutt Soni and Satyaprakash Sakhwar shifted loyalty to the Congress in Madhya Pradesh.
Meanwhile, Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav said that the Congress was very much part of the ‘Mahagatbandhan‘. “We have left two seats (Amethi and Rae Bareli) for the party,” he added.
Yadav also stated that the Rashtriya Lok Dal will contest three Lok Sabha seats as part of SP-BSP alliance, news agency PTI reported.
