RLD formally joins SP-BSP alliance
Lucknow,March 5(HS)The Rashtriya Lok Dal headed by former union minister Ajit Singh on Tuesday formally joined the SP-BSP alliance. The party will contest three Lok Sabha seats-- Baghpat,Mathura and Muzaffarnagar. An announcement to this effect was made at a joint press conference here.It was addressed by SP president Akhilesh Yadav and Jayant Chaudhary,son of Ajit Singh. BSP supremo Mayawati was not present. Akhilesh claimed at the conference that the Congress was a part of the alliance.How? "Because we have left two seats for the party--Amethi and Raebareli ( won by Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi,respectively). The Congress,however, has not made any such statement. Rahul had said at a rally last month that though he has a high regard for both Akhbilesh and Mayawati,he would go it alone and will have no truck with any party. The SP and the BSP will field candidates on 37 and 38 seats,respectively. In the previous Lok Sabha poll,the BSP had drawn a blank.The SP had won five seats and the Congress two. HDS/RN
