The Samajwadi Party (SP) on Wednesday announced its support to the Congress to form a government in Madhya Pradesh. The announcement by Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav came less than an hour after Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati extends its support from Congress in both Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.
“The SP supports the Congress to form government in MP,” Akhilesh Yadav tweeted in Hindi.
समाजवादी पार्टी मध्य प्रदेश में सरकार बनाने के लिए कांग्रेस का समर्थन करती हैं।
