Chhindwara: Madhya Pradesh Congress chief Kamal Nath has reacted to differences with the SP and JDU over seat distribution.
Kamal Nath said he had tried to make an alliance. Kamal Nath made the remark while speaking to reporters in Chhindwara district on Thursday.
"We tried (to make an alliance), it was not about seats, the question was about which seats. The seats for which our people said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would be benefitted, there it could not happen," Nath said.
"We talked, we tried our best, our people were not agreeing. Because the question was not how many seats, the question was which seats. We were not able to convince our people on the seats they wanted," the Congress leader added.
Nath's remarks came after Akhilesh Yadav had earlier said that his party felt betrayed by the Congress. "If Congress didn't want to give seats (in MP), then they should have said it before. Today, SP is fighting only on seats where it has its own organisation. Now after Madhya Pradesh, I know that the INDIA alliance is for the (parliamentary) elections on a national level. If Congress continues to behave like this, then who will trust them? If we fight with confusion in mind against the BJP, then we won't succeed" Akhilesh Yadav had said.
Madhya Pradesh will go to the polls on November 17 and the counting will take place on December 3.
