Samajwadi Party leaves only six seats for Congress in Uttar PradeshMarch 8th, 2009 - 5:59 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, March 8 (IANS) The Samajwadi Party Sunday declared 10 more candidates for the Lok Sabha elections in Uttar Pradesh taking the number of its nominees to 74, but left six constituencies for the Congress despite the stalemate in seat sharing talks.
Of the 80 Lok Sabha constituencies in the state, the Samajwadi Party left Rae Bareli, Amethi, Ghaziabad, Dharora, Mathura and Kanpur City for the Congress.
Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav said his party would not field candidates in these parliamentary constituencies even if there is no alliance with the Congress.
The Samajwadi Party earlier announced candidates for 64 constituencies.
The Congress and the Samajwadi Party are finding it difficult to reach a consensus on seat sharing arrangement in the most populous state of India.
Earlier Sunday, Mulayam Singh said: “We want to contest the elections with them (Congress). Until now our alliance with them has not been finalised, but there are no disputes as well.”
“But I want to tell you that there will be no bitterness with the Congress in the future,” he said.
