There is a ceasefire between Samajwadi Party and Congress. Due to non-distribution of seats in MP elections, there was a tussle between the two allies of INDIA alliance. Former MP Chief Minister Kamal Nath and former UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav were making allegations and counter-allegations against each other. Today Congress Organization General Secretary KC Venugepal called Akhilesh Yadav and said sorry. He also gave him the message of Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge.
Venugopal said that the only goal of both our parties is to defeat BJP. That is why we should end bitterness among ourselves. He also assured that from now on no Congress leader will give any statement against the Samajwadi Party.
Venugopal said that we regret what happened. We all should work together, this is what Rahul Gandhi wants. Akhilesh Yadav himself gave information about the conversation with Venugopal. After this, he has also banned any leader of Samajwadi Party from giving any statement regarding Congress.
SP leaders deleted the post
An order in this regard has also been issued for the spokespersons of Samajwadi Party. Akhilesh Yadav’s new instructions have also been issued on the WhatsApp group made for party spokespersons. On the request of Akhilesh, party spokesperson IP Singh has also deleted his controversial tweet. While posting on social media X yesterday, he had written that Rahul Gandhi is mentally retarded. Even today he had made an objectionable post about Congress and its leader Rahul Gandhi. Now this post has also been deleted.
Samajwadi Party President was out of Lucknow for the last three days. After returning, he called a meeting of his close leaders on Sunday to chalk out a strategy against the Congress. Now this meeting has also been cancelled. It has been said on behalf of Akhilesh Yadav that there will be no further statements on this issue.
There is an uproar over seat distribution
Madhya Pradesh Congress President Kamal Nath had said in response to the question of journalists that who is Akhilesh Vakhilesh!! Leave all this. UP Congress President Ajay Rai, without taking the name of Akhilesh, had said that the one who could not respect his father, how will he respect me? Akhilesh Yadav had also called Ajay Rai a Chirakut leader. Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav, in response to Kamal Nath’s statement, had even called him a small-time leader.
Samajwadi Party wanted to coordinate seats with Congress regarding MP elections. For this, several rounds of phone conversation took place between Kamal Nath and Akhilesh Yadav. Akhilesh Yadav claims that Congress was ready to give him 6 seats. Out of which the candidate for one seat would have been from Congress but the election symbol was fixed for Samajwadi Party.
On the insistence of Akhilesh Yadav, five candidates of his party also met Kamal Nath. But the very next day the Congress party announced candidates for 144 assembly seats. Some of these seats were those which were claimed by the Samajwadi Party. After this, Akhilesh Yadav also announced his 9 candidates in the evening of the same day. Since then a fight had started between Congress and Samajwadi Party.
