As the Uttar Pradesh politics changes with the alliance of SP-BSP, jailed RJD leader Lalu Yadav’s son Tejashwi Yadav has chaired a meet with Akhilesh Yadav today.

Tejashwi said, “In Bihar, Rahul Gandhi's Congress is a part of your alliance but in Uttar Pradesh, Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati have left the party out. What do you have to say?”

On the question of alliance with the Congress, where the RJD is part of the Grand Alliance with the grand old party but was ousted by the SP-BSP, Tejashwi handled the question remarkably saying, “Our aim is to defeat the BJP. You saw how in recent by-polls Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) were enough to defeat the BJP. Rahul Gandhi has also said whether or not he is part of the alliance, the BJP should be defeated.”

While Tejashwi said that the alliance between the two parties was always talked by his father Lalu Yadav, the former met Mayawati on Sunday and briefed the press with Akhilesh Yadav.

Our aim is to defeat the BJP. You saw how in recent by-polls Samajwadi Party and “Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) were enough to defeat the BJP. Rahul Gandhi has also said whether or not he is part of the alliance, the BJP should be defeated,” said Tejashwi, adding that “CBI and ED are no longer agencies, they have now become alliance partners of BJP.Lalu ji is in jail only because Modi ji saw him as a threat.”

The Uttar Pradesh’s 80 Lok Sabha seats are being seen as the way to the central government formation for 2019.
