Lucknow: The grand alliance of anti-BJP parties seems to be a reality after the support of SP and BSP to the Congress ahead of Lok Sabha elections next year.
Observers said the support by the SP and the BSP to the Congress in Madhya Pradesh has raised hopes of a grand alliance of anti-BJP parties in states like Uttar Pradesh.
Political analysts said the doubts over a “mahagathbandhan” of anti-BJP parties have been cleared by the manner in which the SP and the BSP have risen to the occasion.
Mayawati has said in a statement that her party would extend support to the Congress in Madhya Pradesh to form a government and, “if needed”, in Rajasthan.
SP has also extended support to the party in Madhya Pradesh.
