Despite registering a resounding victory in recently concluded assembly polls in – Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Chhattisgarh, Congress has not been invited to be a part of a coalition in Uttar Pradesh in a run-up to the Lok Sabha Elections 2019. The Mayawati led Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Akhilesh Yadav led Samajwadi Party have decided not to take Congress along with the alliance if sources to be believed. These two parties along Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) will take on the Bhartiya Janata Party in the Mega Lok Sabha Battle.

As per the seat sharing deal, BSP will field its candidates on 38 seats, Samajwadi Party will on 37 while 3 seats are given to RLD. Though alliance has decided not to field it’s from -Amethi and Raebareli – the two stronghold and traditional seats of the Congress Party.

Amid talks between forging an alliance on the national level to take on Bhartiya Janata Party, the initial steps from BSP and SP have come has a major setback for the Congress Party. Both the political parties feel that Congress will demand more seats in UP now banking on the resounding victory of the Congress in three states.

Sources also suggest that banking on old experiences both feel that there is no benefit of the Congress taking along because their votes don’t get transferred to the SP and the BSP.

In last Lok Sabha Polls of 2014, Bhartiya Janata Party won 73 seats along with Apna Dal in Uttar Pradesh. While Samajwadi Party won 5 seats and Congress manages to only retain its traditional seats of Amethi and Rae Bareli. Bahujan Samaj Party in the last polls could not manage to open its tally.

Notably, both Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati skipped the Swearing-in ceremonies of the Congress Chief Ministers in three states.
