The Day After - - DIARY | STATES -

Sa­ma­jwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Ya­dav at the party’s na­tional con­fer­ence said his party’s coali­tion with the Congress would con­tinue in Ut­tar Pradesh and they would con­test the 2019 Lok Sabha elec­tion to­gether. “The al­liance with the Congress will con­tinue and we will con­test the next elec­tion to­gether,” he told re­porters at Vrin­da­van.

Asked about Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi’s state­ment that this year, Di­wali was ad­vanced by a fort­night af­ter the re­lax­ations an­nounced in the Goods and Ser­vices Tax (GST), the former Ut­tar Pradesh chief min­is­ter said, “Ask the trader and he would counter the claim.” Ya­dav al­leged that in spite of vis­it­ing Mathura thrice af­ter be­com­ing the chief min­is­ter, Yogi Adityanath had done noth­ing for “Bri­jb­humi”. Even the “dream project” an­nounced by the Yogi gov­ern­ment for the de­vel­op­ment of Vrin­da­van had re­mained a “dream”, he said.
