As SP, BSP seal deal, Cong may go alone
New Delhi: After the SP and BSP agreed to an “in principle” agreement to an alliance in Uttar Pradesh for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the Congress indicated on Saturday that it was ready to contest the polls alone. “A coalition isn’t important. We are prepared and our workers are ready. We haven’t spoken to anybody about an alliance,” senior Congress leader PL Punia said.
