UP Elections: BJP 2nd List Out, Rajnath's Son to Contest from Noida

The prospect alliance between the Samajwadi Party and Congress seemed all but over after Congress did not show interest in the 99 seats offered by the SP; but with Sonia Gandhi stepping in there still is some hope.

News18.com | January 22, 2017, 19:20 IST
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday released the Samajwadi Party’s much-awaited election manifesto, a short while after sealing an alliance with the Congress, which was formally announced in the evening. His father and SP patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav and uncle Shivpal Yadav did not attend the event.

The 32-page manifesto carries the photographs of Akhilesh and Mulayam, but not Shivpal. Key promises include subsidised ration and travel for women, free smartphones and laptops for students and expansion of the pension scheme and Metro network.
