Uttar Pradesh: In a major political development, Samajwadi Party president Shivpal Yadav met Congress poll strategist Prashant Kishor at senior Janata Dal (United) leader KC Tyagi’s residence in Delhi on Wednesday.
The meeting has triggered strong speculation about a possible grand alliance of Samajwadi Party with Congress ahead of the crucial Uttar Pradesh elections in 2017.
Speaking to a news channle, Tyagi rubbished speculation that the meeting held to discuss poll strategies in UP.
He said, “Kishor ji is a good friend of mine and he often come to my residence. It is coincidental that Shivpal ji also came when Kishor ji was present. The meeting was confined to 25th silver jubilee celebration of the Samajwadi Party on November 5 and he came with an invitation.”
“We did not discuss any poll strategy. We are a small party and you are free to make any conclusion,” he stressed.
