The Exit polls result suggested a clear saffron wave in the state of Uttar Pradesh. Akhilesh Yadav fearing contrary results made a huge statement hinting a tie-up with Mayawati. Akhilesh told BBC radio, “Will do anything to keep BJP out. A tie-up with BSP will be better than President rule in UP.” While asserting that SP will retain power in Uttar Pradesh, an alliance with Mayawati’s party was not totally ruled out.

Dharmendra Yadav, party MP and cousin of Akhilesh Yadav said that the election was fought on the plank of development and the people of UP will once again regain their faith in the party. He firmly believed that the Congress-SP allaince will be the one coming to power.

According to IANS on being questioned on the possibility of BSP-SP aligment the SP leader said, “We will not allow President’s rule in the state at any cost. A government chosen by the people will come to power in the state.”

In an interview to BBC Hindi after the Exit polls, Akhilesh Yadav commenting on the BSP-SP alignment said, “I address the leader of the BSP with a respectable name “bua” (aunty) and would not like to say anything beyond this as of now.”
