Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav said today that he would attend Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad Yadav's rally in Patna on August 27 and added that Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati would also be present there.

There has been speculation that arch-rivals SP and BSP may shed hostility and inch closer in view of the BJP's spectacular rise in Uttar Pradesh.

"I will be present at Lalu Prasadji's Bihar rally on Aug27 and Mayawati will also be there. If there is any announcement (regarding future alliance) it will me made there", Akhilesh said when asked about the possibility of SP and BSP coming together again.

However, there has not been any confirmation yet from the BSP on whether Mayawati would attend the event.
