Lucknow: Just two days after the Samajwadi Party and alliance tasted defeat in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections against BJP, a rift could be seen between its alliance partners who have now started to blame each other. While, the party President Akhilesh Yadav has remained silent so far, the Mahan Dal president has said that some of the alliance partners were overconfident and also placed Akhilesh Yadav in overconfidence.

Flaws in the organization have also been blamed for the defeat by Akhilesh ’s uncle and Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party President Shivpal Yadav who also targeted his nephew in gestures. Pointing out the flaws in the organization, Shivpal Yadav, who got only one seat in the alliance with SP, said, “Under the leadership of Akhilesh Yadav, the alliance was formed, but the Bharatiya Janata Party got the majority, so there have been flaws somewhere in it. Somewhere some flaws remain, all of us have to reflect on that. Have to review. Then we will work further. Elections are always won on the strength of the organization, so somewhere there are flaws in the organization.”

Keshav Dev Maurya, the chief of the Mahan Dal and also an ally of SP in this polls, criticised the leaders who made big claims of victory, but failed in the results. Mr Maurya said, “Some leaders of the alliance were making a lot of wind. He himself did not have his vote, but Dave kept doing it. He himself was overconfident and kept Akhilesh Yadav in this as well.” Upon being asked whom he was referring to, the leader said that all the alliance partners are involved in this.

As per political pundits defeat is difficult for all the alliance partners and could lead to a rift after such a defeat. Notably, in 2017 and 2019, the SP had an alliance with the Congress and the BSP, but soon after the defeat, the alliance broke apart. In such a situation, this time also the old result cannot be ruled out.
