UP poll: Bhim Army chief says no alliance with SPJanuary 15, 2022 12:08
Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad today said that his political outfit -- the Azad Samaj Party -- will not ally with the Samajwadi Party for next month's Uttar Pradesh assembly election.
"After all the discussions, in the end, I felt that Akhilesh Yadav does not want Dalits in this alliance, he just wants Dalit vote bank. He humiliated the people of Bahujan Samaj, I tried for 1 month 3 days but the alliance could not happen," the Bhim Army chief said.
On Friday, Azad posted a cryptic tweet over the possible alliance with Samajwadi Party, saying it is not easy to defeat Bharatiya Janata Party without strength and unity.
He said it is the responsibility of the leader of a coalition to respect and take care of the representation of all sections of the society.
