It’s Official! After Mayawati, now Akhilesh Yadav confirms his party has dumped Rahul Gandhi’s Congress in Madhya Pradesh

One after another, everyone has started abandoning the Congress party after a weak candidate named Rahul Gandhi became its chief. The first big blow to the Congress party was given by BSP supremo Mayawati and now by another prominent regional player Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party (SP).

After dumping Rahul Gandhi’s Congress party, Akhilesh Yadav said “I would like to thank Congress that they did not take SP and BSP with them. At least we can now tell everyone about their failures. Because of their poor decisions, BJP is ruling the country today. So I want to thank them that we can now say something against them. The Congress doesn’t give us any importance. That party was ready to allot seats to SP in Madhya Pradesh elections. However, we told them that the election is going to be a big battle and we need to include the BSP in the alliance, but the Congress was not ready. So, our alliance could not materialise”.

He added “The Congress would have won more than 200 seats in the November 28 elections had it tied-up with the BSP, SP and GGP. But by not forging an alliance with us, the Congress has given us an opportunity to criticise them”.

A month ago Akhilesh Yadav had said “I have waited enough. I can’t wait any longer. We are talking to BSP, but can’t wait for Congress. Nobody waits this long in politics. We are not a bechara party. We are a small party in Madhya Pradesh but we count at number 4”.

Earlier Mayawati had dumped the Congress party and had joined hands with Ajit Jogi in Chhattisgarh. Even in Madhya Pradesh, Mayawati’s BSP decided not to go with the Congress party. Now this has created a big problem to the Congress party because the people who vote for the BSP or the SP are the ones who usually vote for Congress, says the political experts.

Mayawati had even said that the Congress party is scared of the BJP and is even suppressing the lower sections of the society.
