Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav again disparaged the INDIA bloc ally on Friday, expressing frustration with the Congress for failing to reach a seat-sharing agreement in the Madhya Pradesh assembly elections and stating, "If the Congress behaves like this, who will stand with them."

"The country faces a significant difficulty, but I'm not offering the Congress party any advise or recommendations. There is a lot of the BJP. It's a really well-organized side. Therefore, this should not be a source of confusion for any party. The SP president told reporters in this location, "You will never win an election if you fight with confusion."

He expressed his displeasure on Thursday that his party, the Congress, had not been given any seats in Madhya Pradesh despite discussions about seat sharing. He also hinted that the Congress would receive the same treatment in Uttar Pradesh.

The chief of the Samajwadi Party (SP) had stated that if he had known that the INDIA alliance was limited to the national level, his party leaders would not have responded to the Congress's requests for a meeting in Madhya Pradesh. Telling reporters, "I must have got confused,"

President of the Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee Ajay Rai retaliated on Friday, saying Mr. Yadav could not hold the Congress responsible as the SP had already announced its slate of candidates before his party and was helping the BJP by running independently. The head of the SP, however, restated that the INDIA alliance had to have made it clear that there would be no alliance for the state elections.

"PDA (Backward, Dalit and Alpsankhyak) was formed prior to INDIA," he declared. I have stated multiple times that although there is an INDIA alliance, PDA is our plan, and PDA will overcome NDA." 

"We were asked about the seats we wanted in Madhya Pradesh by a former chief minister and a leader of the state. I gave him information about the performance of the Samajwadi Party in several elections and informed him that many Madhya Pradesh voters were elected and then joined other parties.

"I reminded that when Congress needed support, SP MLA was the first to offer support and government was formed," he stated.

"We are opposed to the BJP and have pledged our help in their defeat. They promised to provide us with six seats throughout the meeting, which went until one in the morning. However, after they announced candidates for every seat, the SP was forced to announce candidates from our strongholds," he said.

On Thursday night, the (SP) unveiled its third list of two contenders. With this, it has declared 33 candidates for the 230-member legislature in the BJP-ruled state's elections scheduled for November 17. The 229 seats in Congress have candidates announced. Insiders from both parties claim that although the Congress had promised to provide the SP six seats in Madhya Pradesh, the seat-sharing agreement never came to pass.

"I think you ought not to have spoken to us if you weren't prepared to provide a seat. However, they provided us with no information. Thus, SP is engaged in combat wherever we are present," Mr. Yadav declared.

It is probable that Congress feels the same way about Raebareli and Amethi as the Samajwadis do about Azamgarh. The SP chief stated, "We have never commented on Raebareli and Amethi," without providing further details.

With a combined vote share of 1.30 percent with the tribal Gondwana Gantantra Party, the SP secured one seat (Bijawar in the Bundelkhand region) and ended second out of five candidates in the 2018 Madhya Pradesh elections.

The main purpose of the INDIA coalition was to present a unified front to the voters in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections against the Bharatiya Janata Party. Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, poked fun at the INDIA bloc when its members put up candidates to compete in the assembly polls, claiming that the opposition organisation is motivated by the idea of "friendship in Delhi and wrestling in states."
