AAP MP Sanjay Singh Meets SP Chief Akhilesh Yadav in Lucknow
Sanjay Singh, a Rajya Sabha member and Uttar Pradesh in-charge for the Aam Aadmi Party, met with Akhilesh Yadav, the leader of the Samajwadi Party, in Lucknow on Wednesday. The meeting between the two leaders took place at the Janeshwar Mishra Trust, sparking political speculation about a possible agreement between the SP and the AAP on several key UP seats in the NCR for the 2022 Uttar Pradesh state assembly elections. Both parties, however, have referred to the meeting as a 'courtesy' meeting.
Speaking to the media after an hour-long meeting with Akhilesh Yadav, Sanjay Singh said, “We both are trying to uproot the BJP from the state. The meeting was good and a wide variety of issues were discussed including the upcoming elections, however no discussion was done on alliance or any kind of seat-sharing.”
This was Sanjay Singh's third meeting with Akhilesh Yadav in recent months. A meeting between the two leaders took place earlier on Monday, on the occasion of Mulayam Singh's birthday.
