Sources say the Congress-BSP alliance talks fell through as the grand old party was unwilling to cede as many seats in states like Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan as sought by BSP.

NEW DELHI: In spite of Fail in seat sharing talk with BSP and SP for the upcoming assembly election in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and in Chhattisgarh, congress on Sunday  reiterated its plan of forming a “mahagatbandhan” of opposition parties against the BJP for Lok sabha elections. Congress spokesperson said the party’s national leadership had gone with its state units assessment of the prevailing ground situation, and how many seats it could part with for likely allies.

 “State units are better aware of the ground situation than the central leadership. They took a decision and the central leadership accepted it,” spokesperson said, adding that this fallout should not be linked to talks for forging a grand alliance for the Lok Sabha polls. “It should not be confused with attempts to forge a mahagathbandhan that is meant for the Lok Sabha polls.”

Sources say the Congress-BSP alliance talks fell through as the grand old party was unwilling to cede as many seats in states like Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan as sought by Mayawati’s party.

Five states — Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram, Rajasthan and Telangana — are headed for Assembly polls between November 12 and December 7. The Assembly polls are being seen as the semifinal to the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
