Lucknow, January 30: Rejecting the Samajwadi Party-Congress tie-up for Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, senior Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav has said that he will not campaign for the alliance in the state.Mulayam said yesterday that Congress ruled the country for a long time and made it a laggard.

The SP founder said that, I am against the alliance formed between the Samajwadi Party and the Congress. I will never acknowledge this alliance. The Congress was in power for so long, but it did not do anything for the development of the country. I will not campaign in this election," Mulayam told.
the alliance was unnecessary as the party has the capability to win the elections without any support. Our party has the capability to contest this election without any support. I am confident that it would have marked victory had it contested alone. I will request the party cadres to speak against the alliance and take it to the people, he added.
On this spokesperson of SP Juhi Singh says, Understand and respect Netaji's feelings but SP with Congress is going to form Govt. We'll keep requesting Netaji to come and campaign. We all belong to Netaji but if he does not choose to bless us or campaign we will still carry his blessings in spirit with us.
